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.

"Or perhas Canonical should hire them to take care of Kubuntu?

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

BWAHAHAHAAHAH.... No, seriously... What? Is there anything really that Kubuntu excels at or that sets it apart from other distros other than the fact that it has got to be buggiest KDE distro in existence?

I am not trying to start a distro flame fest but if you really feel that Kubuntu is better than $INSERT_DISTRO you need serious help!
