Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "After making a lot of progress with Mandriva Linux 2007, I thought perhaps Mandriva had turned over a new leaf, and was using that release as a starting point for an overall better quality operating environment. I was totally wrong. Both the PowerPack Edition and Discovery/LX have slid so far back with version 2007.1 that I have serious doubts as to the future of Mandriva's viability as a commercial desktop operating system."

Besides,

$39.90 USD for Mandriva Discovery and ~$38.10 USD for the Fluendo "All" codecs totals $78.

Just $78 to be legal and a great way to establish credit on my first credit card. ;-)

Plus I believe I remember seing Mandriva having Cedega and Anti-Virus software as well. So thats an extra bonus to import into your favorate distro.

While I agree with your reasoning, I am unsure if the codec packs actually are transferable from one distro to another.
