I can't really comment on the Club... I have an account, but I rarely
use it.  I do know it has been getting better and more things are
planned (but I can't divulge specifics).

I can also tell you that 2007.1 is better than 2007; both are good
versions, but 2007.1 adds some nice stuff and feels better.

Mandriva is also working great on my HP tablet... a laptop that neither
SUSE nor Ubuntu could make work as well as Mandriva did (in fact, Ubuntu
refused to even boot on the silly thing).
