    mandrake 9.2 has soem "adds" in it to get revenue from mandrakesoft, which is actaualyl not a bad idea. No this is not windows like spyware, it just means that the default bookmarks in ur browser will haev some "additional" links and the screensaver/desktop by default will show adds i think. (also u probably got some during isntall)

    They can eassily be removed just by changing to the wallpaper/screensaver and by clickign add/remove bookmarks in ur browser.

    Oh yeah, the reatil version has a big and very useful manual, and gets u a subsription the mandrakes download site, and their helpdesk.

    apart from taht, not much.

    You will also have some commercial or not-free softwares (Java, Flash player, StarOffice, ...) with commercial verisions of Mandrake Linux.
