Then all you have to do is wait until the public isos are available for download. By the way, you can join the MandrakeClub for only 60 euros a year - 40 quid or so. That's what I did.

Don't forget, the powerpack has commercial software included, so it is illegal to ftp images of it for public download.

I thought you need to be a silver member or above to get it?

Hmm... Should I get the community version now? Or should I wait for the powerpack to come out.

Decisions. Decisions.

6 more days...

You could go get Gentoo 2004.0... it looks really cool... if you want to spend 2 days installing it. 1 day to read how to install it and 1 day to do it.
