The Paris, France-based company's Mandriva 2006 can be seen as trying to offer all things to all men as it includes both desktop and server technologies, such as support for Intel Corp's Centrino, Skype, and desktop search, as well as high availability server and software management functionality.
Three editions have been made available to present the variety of functionality to its potential users, however. As well as PowerPack for advanced users, and PowerPack+ for small and home office users (both of which use the old Mandrakesoft PowerPack brand), Mandriva 2006 also comes in a Discovery/Lx edition for Linux beginners.
