Since Mandriva Linux 2009, LXDE is the desktop of choice for low-end systems, especially netbooks. LXDE replaced IceWM as the default light weight DE in Mandriva.
LXDE is a lightweight yet modern desktop environment designed to give a modern desktop experience on less powerful hardware with a particular eye towards its use on netbook systems, for which it is ideal. LXDE provides a fast and attractive desktop with a traditional launcher menu and panel, a file manager (PCMan File Manager), task manager, display configuration tool, image viewer, notepad application, and archive management application. Installing LXDE on Mandriva Linux 2009 Spring is as easy as installing the task-lxde package. For more information on LXDE, see the official site, and especially the Mandriva page on the LXDE wiki.
