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.

When Mandrake Linux (soon to be Mandriva) bought out Lycoris and killed the BEST user-friendly desktop distribution out there it really saddened me for Linux in general. Here was a brilliant work of art snuffed with the stroke of a pen. Damn them for killing Lycoris.
