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.

Not a bad thing

I'm not sure why many people are seeing this as a bad thing. In my mind a fork might actually swing this distro back in the right direction. While I haven't used it personally since it was, if I recall, Mandrake 6, it seems to me like letting the core developers and community push it where the company would not might be just what it needs.
