"Mandriva Linux, once an undisputed leader of desktop Linux (and a distribution that many people loved to hate at the time), has been through many ups and downs throughout its relatively long history. Fortunately, it seems that right now it finds itself at the top of the curve. The reason? The strong support it has been receiving from the many Mandriva user communities around the world. As a consequence, several contributed builds of Mandriva Linux 2010 for a variety of tastes and purposes have been made available recently. One of them, an Xfce build of Mandriva Linux 2010 (an installable live CD), announced last week by Stéphane Téletchéa, is now available from the official Mandriva mirrors (look for it in the devel/iso/contrib/2010.0/ directory). Similarly, the German Mandriva users' group has released an LXDE edition of Mandriva Linux 2010 (news story in German) - an installable live CD with support for several languages, including English. And finally, those who have been looking for 64-bit Mandriva 2010 "One" images but couldn't find them (unfortunately, Mandriva does not provide any) are also in luck - the Community64.net web site (in French only for now) has started building 64-bit live CDs of the latest Mandriva release. The KDE edition is already available for download from this page (also in French, but the links are self-explanatory), with more to come in the next few weeks. It's refreshing to see all this community involvement contributing to the growth of Mandriva Linux!"
