from Distrowatch:

Thanks to the efforts of the Mandriva Linux Xfce development community, an Xfce edition of Mandriva Linux 2008.1 One is now available. Just like the KDE and GNOME editions of One, this is an installable live CD edition of Mandriva Linux 2008.1, but this time featuring Xfce as the desktop environment. As with the other One editions, three images are available, with different sets of languages on each. This is an unofficial release, but the Xfce development volunteers will attempt to address any problems or questions about this release.

i'll put this on my list of 'distros to try', using the gnome version at the moment and pretty pleased with it.

just tried it on my notebook; looks really great; had isues with cpu scaling; had to install powersave to make it scale. Discovered it runns cooler than kde or gnome. needs getting used to though.
