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.

I've started using linux with Mandrake. I've used it for a number of years with pleasure. When I used ubuntu for a school project I wanted to switch to gnome and the overall experience wasn't that good with gnome on Mandrake. That made me switch to ubuntu, but from time to time I do miss features like their configuration tools.
Last year I tried the new Mandriva desktop for a week or so and it certainly felt very good. I hope that they won't disappear, because I might change back in the future.
