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.

well, they stated clearly that they're not interested in the Desktop because they don't see any revenue opportunity in that market.

Which pretty much sums up: Linux is for servers, and will never have a strong desktop presence.

I couldn't agree more.
