10.0 or 10.0 community?

what is the difference between mandrake 10.0 and mandrake 10.0 community? Is seems linux isos has listed regular 10.0 available for download, but they have 10.0 community avaiable thru bittorrent.

below is from linux
ALSO NOTE: Mandrake 10 is missing from most mirrors. Mandrake has reportedly removed the images from servers in preparation for a newer release, which will be available to club members first. For now the 10.0 Community Edition ISOs have been archived at the mirror.
does this imply a version 10.1 is coming, or are they refering to 10.0 community?

Mandrake 10 CE (Community Edition) is kind of a beta and was released first (i think 2 month) before Mandrake 10.0 Official. ISOs for 10.0 Official are availible for non members since yesterday on

You should get the Official ISOs, since the packages on them are newer.
You can also check for package version comparision between CE and Official version. As far as I know it is also possible to Update from CE to Official via ftp.

thanks, I thought it was the other way around, community being newer. I guess It makes more sence that official is newer.

Sweet! Just in time for when I purchase my new hardware! Gotta get to downloading when I get home from work! I wish they had Gnome 2.6 and Gimp 2 though.
