Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "Duval details his side of the story: "Fired. Yes. Simply fired, for economical reasons, along with a few other ones. More than 7 years after I created Mandrake-Linux and then Mandrakesoft, the current boss of Mandriva 'thanks me' and I'm leaving, sad, with my two-month salary indemnity standard package. It's difficult to accept that back in 1998 I created my job and the one of many other people, and that recently, on a February afternoon, Mandriva's CEO called to tell me that I was leaving." Mandriva's CEO replies: "Gael was not fired. This term would imply something wrong on his part, which was not the case. He was laid off."

Stop talking nonsense, will you.

Your arguments are pathetically devoid of reason,insight or anything that may look like a thought coming out of your skull.

Suse's development has been opened. Yast has a wonderful ncurses interface that can be utilized even over a slow modem link. It is consistent and reliable.

The people like you who need to demonize other projects to boost their pet projects do immense harm to the spirit of collaboration that is at the heart of open source.
