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.

Distributions die, distributions come into existence, companies die, companies come into existence. The evolution works, life goes on.

What's everyone so frackin' sad about? Indulging in pointless nostalgia, because here it's about a Linux company. Their business failed because they sucked at business.
