I wonder, is it possible than Mandriva could be in this race?
Last time I install it, I remember being quite surprise by the number of packages... Though you have to pay to have access to the nice stuff. Plus, I don't like Mandriva

I believe Portage (Gentoo) is '8000+'. I remember seeing that somewhere but I could be wrong.
Debian may still come out as the one with the most packages, but as has been covered already, you'll likely need to add the (unofficial) marillat repo to get everything you want.noobus in perpetuum

According to debian.org, kde 3.4.2 is available in unstable.
When you add ubuntu universe and multiverse, I belive it had over 16000 packages.
Freebsd IIRC has 13000 and sometihng, like mentioned
I belive Gentoo had far more than 8000 packages, 8000 might have been in 2004 or something.

If you come to think about it, any source based distro has a huge repository, because they use .tar.gz and those files, just need to look for 'em

If I enable all my repos(I never do), I have over 19000 packages for Debian stable alone i(a few of them are dummy packages though, I also don't enable them all for updating). It's default(the free stable base repo) is already the biggest one.
Not using non-free is a personal choice, so it's repo should count as well.
An obvious win for Debian
PS: MP3 is supported in default as well.
Debian has always ignored this patent (They don't remove something before it's actively enforced).
