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.

Slackware? Arch?

I haven't tried either of those, could give a whirl to them. But I have this image that they're a tad more high-maintenance distros than f.ex. Mandriva, and after having used Gentoo for years before I moved to Mandriva I am not really interested in high-maintenance anymore :/
