In case you have not noticed, Mandriva(Texstar Edition) is #2 on the
Distrowatch hit list and about to supplant Ubuntu in another week or two.
So yes, it is still very relevant.

Ehm... Are you sure about this? This is what I see in the Page Hit Ranking table for default setting, 6 months:

Rang Distribution H.P.D*
1 Ubuntu 2620<
2 PCLinuxOS 2464>
3 openSUSE 1476<
4 Fedora 1331<
5 Sabayon 1160>
6 Debian 1026<
7 Mint 986<
8 MEPIS 943<
9 Mandriva 780>

It looks almost the same for the other time ranges. I can remember times when it was on #2. Now Mandriva gGoing down constantly :-(

What do you think he meant by Mandriva(Texstar Edition)? You might want to brush up on the origins of PCLinuxOS.
