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. (Thanks to everybody who submitted this)

Yeah why fix something thats been broke forever? Then what will with OSNews folk post when any time some 'outter country fella' does something in the computer world? Crazy Kids and your new fangled ISO layouts! Forget this! I'm going back to 1983 when we didn't have no stinkin dead keys!

I have to agree to a degree with this person here: OSNews being a geek site aimed squarely at other geeks yet the inability of using UTF8 just gives a pretty unprofessional feeling. I have no idea what their code is like and what language they're using, but I still doubt it'd be much work to convert the system to use UTF8 through and through.
