Very debatable question. I'll tell you my limited experience with

Mandrake initially was not just based on RedHat, it was almost a xerox
copy of RedHat. During install (1-2 yrs ago) there were so many
references to redhat that Mandrake had not removed. 

I haven't installed 7.2, but have used 7.1 briefly. It is more RedHat
based than a copy. People who swear by Mandrake have told me that it is
optimized for Pentiums. Others preferred the KDE interface that Mandrake
came with. Frankly, I haven't noticed too much difference. Then again, I
haven't used Mandrake much.
