Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris If there's one Linux company that has seen lots of ups and downs it's the Paris-based Mandriva S.A. They have a great distribution, but as a company, they've always been on shaky grounds. First a rumour, now confirmed: the company has put itself up for sale - which, as the community points out, isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Makes me sad that Ubuntu is what it is mainly because Mark's money tap. However, I think we needed someone to do this, for Linux in general.

I just wished other distros wanted the mainstream too. A world where competition would boil down to a general refinement in Linux desktop.
