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.

Mandriva was the second distro i used after getting into Linux and i really enjoyed the experience.

But now i feel that its lost its appeal. I to am a Gentoo user, still holding onto it on one of my machines. The other two run Ubuntu.

I sometimes try Mandriva when a new release pops up, but i never keep it much. The reason for that is simple: you have limited configuration options(compared to gentoo) and it lacks the polish and the community of Ubuntu.
