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.

No thanks, Kubuntu is already better than Madriva. I'd hate to see anything like drakconf in it.

If you had tried Mandriva, you would know that you can choose not to use drakconf. You can modify the underlying configuration files directly just like in kubuntu and it won't break anything. Drakconf can even work with your hand modified files.
Someone preferring Kubuntu over Mandriva, that is a first. Never heard that before. But I suspect you didn't try and don't know what you are talking about.
