Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Somewhere in 2001, I bought a computer magazine which came with a Linux CD. I had heard of Linux before, but while we did have broadband back then and was technically capable of downloading a Linux distribution, this method was far easier. This was my first foray into Linux - it was Mandrake. Now, though, it seems the curtain has really dropped for the French Linux company.

Thom, I use Mandriva, now, in 2012.


If you don't mind me asking, why do you use Mandriva instead of Mageia? As far as I know the main developers left and founded Mageia. Mageia is supposed to be the true sucessor of Mandrake/Mandriva. I'm just curious and maybe you can shed a bit more more light on the issue.
