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.

One being that we have to migrate away from our existing Mandriva installations,

No, I don't think you need to. If I have understood correctly, it will just be an upgrade like it usually is when upgrading to a new version.

The future Mageia distro is still being developed in *Mandriva* Cooker.

Don't make your up conclusions before the Mageia team have published more detailed plans.
