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.

I'm getting tired of hearing about this company almost croaking. It'd be nice if they'd just hurry up and get it over with. The latest Mandriva (2011) sucks anyway, Mandrake/Mandriva fans would be better off with Mageia... at this point Mageia is more Mandriva than Mandriva itself. Truly pathetic. And even more pathetic is the reason for this supposed bankruptcy... shareholder infighting? Seriously? Just f***ing die for once, and take your pathetic immature shareholders down with you.
