Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "Just days after the Mandriva community started its own plans for the next release of the French Linux distribution, its commercial sponsor has formally announced that the community will take the lead on all Mandriva Linux development moving forward. In a blog post on the Mandriva SA site, CEO Jean-Manuel Croset ceded control of the Mandriva Linux distribution back to the community at large." Take 'r 'round the shed and put a bullet 'tween 'r eyes already.

It is very sad to see it go.

In the good old days, Mandrake used to be one of my favourite distributions, like Ubuntu is for me nowadays.

Its support for Pentium only processors and a pleasant desktop experience, when compared with other distributions, was great.

But then they started going into the wrong direction...
