I just reading through the Mandrakelinux 10.2 beta 1 read me. I hope to start testing it this week, overwriting my 10.1 install. Some things that I find interesting are:
1) You can put the CD’s on your hard drive so you don’t have to stick the disks in when you want to add a package that you already have.
2)Drakestats. Gives you a list of all installed (I’m guessing from RPM only) software and how often you’ve used it.
