     Mandriva PowerPack 2010.2, Firefox 3.6.15.

     Firefox 4.x.x in strong beta so yes they update as often as
practical for the system.

     I am getting 127 packages of updates to various parts of
Mandriva as I type this.

     Also got the new Linux Pro magazine and it come with
an Eco disk more flexible and lighter than the normal DVDs
we have been seeing and on that disk is Mandriva Free 2010.2.

     People who are interested ask me why I run Mandriva Powerpack.
In the USA the recording part of the entertainment industry insists
on various protections on the DVDs such as Region codes and other
items.  They have licensed MS to provide these and maybe Apple
as well.  By getting the Powerpack and paying for it I get the license
from a company called Fluendo so that I can play entertainment
DVDs on my computer.
