I've been using Mandrake for 3 years now that makes somewhat biased. A made a netinstall which worked flawlessly although it took some time to download all the 3.0 Gb of apps i wanted.
First I made update install, which worked to some extend - my Nvidia drivers didn't worker after the reboot but after a short nv->nvidia in the xorg.conf file I was back in gui. KDE 3.3 is really faster than 3.2 and the new loginmanager gdm (mandrake skinned) was very sleek. I soon found out that due some changes in the way hardware was detected i had other problems and couldn't cinstall nvida drivers again since mdk though i had installed kernel headers but those must have been for the mdk 10.1 kernel.
All in all i made a new install (again keeping /home) and now it all seems great. All my hardware was found and worked as a charm (it also did in 10.1). It feels very new - all my favorit apps have been updated and kile, kontact, kpdf juk are very sleek.
