Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "Customers and partners can sometimes make a difference. In accordance with their feedback and Mandriva's analysis of the overall advantages and drawbacks of the longer development schedule, Mandriva decided to adjust the life cycle of the consumer oriented products to a shorter 6 month period."

I am not surprised by this move. Yearly releases of a distro like Mandriva were bound to cause problems. With other distros releasing every 6 to 9 months, a distro thats released once annually tends to seem outdated when compared to those that release often and include the latest features.
