For those from the Mandriva camp, you'll want to head on over to your favorite mirror to check out the freshly released beta of Mandriva Linux 2010.1. Mandriva 2010.1 Beta 1 is running with GNOME 2.30 that was released just this past week, provides a preview of GNOME Shell for a glimpse of what is coming with GNOME 3.0 later this year, and there is a wealth of other package updates too.

As usual, for Mandriva Linux 2010.1 Beta there are 32-bit and 64-bit DVD ISOs that have been spun along with KDE and GNOME LiveCDs for those not interested in the whole Mandriva package collection.

The release notes for the 2010.1 Beta 1 release can be found on the Mandriva Wiki. The release announcement has been issued as part of a blog post.
