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.

Tell me if my logic is wrong.

Employees sacked.

Mageia comes into existance.

Mandriva (the company), only needs to wait on new Mageia releases to create the next versions of Mandriva Linux.

Mandriva doesn't need to pay staff since they are now working on Mageia for free.

I don't like it. Sounds like someone is still getting away with something here.
