"For this article, I show how a default installation of Mandriva One 2010 and a custom installation of Mandriva Free 2010 was upgraded to Mandriva One 2010 Spring and Mandriva Free 2010 Spring respectively. In a default of Mandriva One 2010, the install creates just one non-LVM partition where everything in installed under /, the root filesystem. In my custom installation of Mandriva Free 2010, I used an LVM-based partitioning scheme, with separate Logical Volumes for the major filesystem directories (/usr, /tmp, /var, /, /home and /opt).

"As part of the updates notifier (read how to configure Mandriva's updates notifier), Mandriva offers the option, not enabled by default, to have the system check and notify you when a new version has been released. The image below was obtained from the Mandriva Free installation. If it were from the Mandriva One installation, the arrowed line in the will be Check for newer 'Mandriva One' releases."
