I've downloaded the beta version of Mageia 6 Plasma 5 and I'm trying it out now on a USB stick.

I've never been a big KDE fan but this particular desktop is pretty impressive. They have come a long way since KDE 4. I don't know how well it'll work in VirtualBox since the 3D capabilities in VBox are pretty limited.
Of course you get all the Mandriva Control Center Tools that I really like. If you are interested in trying out a real solid RPM based distro give it a try.

Zowie! I installed Mageia 6 in VirtualBox and the update was 715 packages - almost like a Netinstall of the whole system. It rebooted OK fortunately.
The Plasma desktop does work in VBox; as you can see above it uses the software llvmpipe to give 3D rendering. I wouldn't want to game with it, but at least the desktop is functional.

Here's Mageia 6 with one of the cool custom wallpapers - running in VBox on LM 18.1

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984
