Style, as you might know, is a matter of taste. Some find that design A looks great, while others prefer design B. It has always been that way and will remain like that. I don't see anything wrong with that. That said, imho, other distros look worse than Mandriva.

The name... well, it is just as ridiculous as PCLinuxOS or Ubuntu or Suse or debian or sidux or knoppix or ... you get the idea.

About the codecs: Mandriva ships with more codecs than e.g. Ubuntu or Fedora by default. I don't see anything wrong here. And enabling the repos with the non-free stuff is a three click procedure that can be done by anyone. I don't really know what you are complaining about...
