I think you've just read too much into the article. Yes, Mandrake is a very nice distrobution for the desktop, but then Mandrake isn't trying to sell into the server market ( their US markiting stinks...I know that they have a server install, and that every linux install can be shoe-horned into a server roll.) I guess it all boils down to what you expect for your dollar; RedHat wants the "big money", Mandrake wants large numbers of desktop users. Both get there given enough satisfied paying users.
That said, I would like to think that every _major_ release used a bittorrent type release as well. I've found, that for popular files, bittorrent works wonders. I've taken to searching for .torrent links in /. posts just to take a load off of the public ftp servers.
