Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris It seems that the previous news about Mandriva SA being for sale have been more than simple rumors. Frederic Cuif* (incorrectly unaccented due to limitations in our CMS), active member of the French-speaking Mandriva User Group has summed up the various outcomes and proposed projects he found after contacting several key members of the company in order to gather information. The result of his investigation can be found on his blog, along with a detailed analysis of the Mandriva business model and the proposed outcomes, from a renewed interest in the distribution and the community from Linagora, potential buyer, to what could be the end of the Mandriva adventure if nothing is done.

I know Gael Duval (original founder of Mandrake/Mandriva) is no longer apart of the company, but I am curious to know his thoughts and feelings regarding what his distribution (or his baby so-to-speak) is going through.

Having said that, does anyone know whatever happened to his Ulteo project? I haven't heard any news about it since it was introduced. A quick look around the ulteo website doesn't provide any sense of recent (or old for that matter) activity. Anyone use/used it?

Update: Further investigation shows that Ulteo is current and active. I guess I didn't look hard enough the first time. It's a Virtual Desktop and Application server. I still am curious to know what Gael thinks of all of this.
