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 another one of those who started with Mandrake, kept up with Mandriva and I don't regret it at all.

Please, let Mandriva die once for all and let the community take care of Mageia, its natural reincarnation.
I'm ashamed of seeing this glorius distro slowly and painfully die of starvation.
