Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris It's been a troubling couple of weeks for Mandriva, but I decided not to report on it since I found it hard to unravel the events leading up to all this. Now, though, the story has come to its (logical) conclusion: now that most of Mandriva's employees have been laid off, they came together and forked Mandriva. Enter Mageia.

Mandrake -> Mandriva -> Mageia. What's next? This distro has brought a lot to the Linux community over the years, including a good portion of proper package management as we know it today. I used it back in the Mandrake days, and it was way ahead of it's time then, and stable as a rock. Visual package management was unheard of, but Mandrake had it. I think later distributions have a lot of homage to pay to this distro. Good luck.
