Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "Though delayed for a while and later to market than most Mandriva fans would probably prefer, the new Mandriva Linux 2007 PowerPack Edition is finally here, nearly a year after the previous release. 2007 is typical Mandriva through and through: attractively themed in KDE, easy to install without skipping the technical details, a little bug-ridden here and there, and full of new and interesting software technologies. This release does have its own identity, though; not only has the standard theme been redesigned for the first time in several years, but this is the first Mandriva release to include a legal DVD movie player."

What difference do retail boxes make these days?
According to the article there're still quite a lot bugs open.I might aswell install fedora 5/6 and order cedega for €15 separate or €19,95 for a CD.

Paying for a linux box in my opinion should garantee a more bug free experience in my opinion.

Than again SUSE 10.1 retail was/is a real disaster also.
