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.

And that is because they don't know Mandriva, precisely because of Marketing (or lack of). No ship-it program and less marketing power.


Precisely. So what's the problem? We were discussing whether Ubuntu contributes or just does marketing.

Lesson learnt: Do enough marketing. Shipit is just a part of marketing.

Anyway we moved off-topic. We were discussing why Ubuntu does not contribute rather than who has more money.
