    Try it yourself, nobody can decide which is the best distro for you

    karamab is for kde but there is also gdesklets for gnome
    -does Mandriva linux provide some autoupdate features that meke it posible to update linux from internet ?
    Almost all distros can do this
    -what is prefered Desktop in Mandriva 2007 powerpack ?
    KDE

    All Linux distros support these with some effort.
