i really wouldn't bother changing, the only real benefit of mandrake is that it's easier to understand for newbies, and i'd guess you're past that one. there are a few nice touches in mandrake, like rpmdrake and diskdrake, but i wouldn't really se that as a justifcation. and the gnome logos are hideous in MD
