I once used Mandriva because i found it the most easy and friendly distro, but now, I use Fedora, which is almost as easy to use, and you can get ISO images to download on the same day of release.

Me I did a network install, wich I found just as easy, as long as one has the bandwidth of course. To me they can just keep the ISOs, and they're not breaking with GPL or any other licenses by delaying them some weeks.

I did a network install as well and found it easier that SuSe to set up. It was quicker, too. And this was less than 5 days after the intial release when the mirrors were getting hammered.
