| has been through some major changes recently, both in terms of ownership and 
| development goals. Read our feature story for the roundup of its recent past 
| and probable future to learn more about the project. In the news section,

| with LZMA compression mechanism, and the Ubuntu community looks to create yet 
| another derivative based on the LXDE. Finally, don't miss our tips and trick 
| section which provides a step-by-step guide of upgrading a stable Mandriva 
| Linux 2009.1 to the latest Cooker, Mandriva's bleeding-edge development
