Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Gael Duval, creator of Mandrake Linux (now Mandriva Linux), has been fired from the company. The information leaked on the Mandriva forums, and Duval later confirmed it on his own webpage. He says: "Since the information has leaked, I will post a message in the next few days on this website about why this is the end of the Mandriva story for me, and what's next." Since Mandrake was for many the first distribution they ever tried, I think it is only fair to thank him for creating Mandrake, and to wish him the best of luck in any following endeavours.

UBUNTU what !, I love when people try to shove their agenda in anything. I still consider Mandrake as the aesthetically pleasing desktop with good installer. The decsion to remove Gael Duval maybe infact good for the company, A founder of a company can not be a good Businessman essentially.
