It seems I've now been with Mandriva for more or less a year - time flies when you're having fun!
Today I spent several hours testing Kiosk, the new web-based one-click software installation system. Identified several bugs and potential improvements. Will be doing more testing tomorrow in various situations. VMware is turning out to be an absolute godsend for this; it's wonderful to be able to keep a copy of a clean 2006 install, then mess it up in various inventive ways to do testing, then be able to start again from the clean version simply by copying it back.
