Firstly Mandriva is a KDE distribution.

Secondly ease of use, my first pleasant experience with Linux comes from Mandriva (Then Mandrake). It has some nice graphical tools to help you set it up etc.

I have to say I now use Ubuntu but I've got space on my hard drive for another OS I might well try Mandriva again or maybe the latest Opensuse.

So many distros so much choice.

Mandriva is most certainly NOT a KDE distro. It was at one point but that is long in the past. I run Mandriva with GNOME exclusively. Mandriva also works great with XFCE.

Mandriva is a desktop neutral distro.

Perhaps. Saying that makes as much sense as to claim that Ubuntu is a desktop neutral distro, because of Kubuntu.
