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.

That was something that Mandrake inherited from Conectiva, among many other things like a real, working, svn backboned distro development set of tools that made a sensible distribution development enviroment.
