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.

What's this Ubuntu fork of Debian? The last thing we need is another distro.. oh.. wait.. turns out there was value in yet another distro.

Mandriva is floundering, what's wrong with the technology people who produced Mandriva producing a replacement for it?

Complaining about too many distros is like complaining about to many toothburshes to choose from at the store. A healthy market has choice and in a healthy market products fail and are replaced by competing products.
