The 5th CD usually contains non-free stuff that Mandrake cannot distribute freely.

If the community download destroys your CD-player Mandrake will have a few weeks to fix it before they release the download version.

He means that the community version isn't guaranteed to be totally bug-free, whereas the Official release will be bulletproof.

Please clarify this stuff to me... so there are the following versions:

Mandrake Club Community Download: 4 cd's
Mandrake Club Community Powerpack download: 5 cd's
Public download edition (available on the 15th): 3 cd's
Office powerpack (7cd's, available may): 7cd's

is this ok?
