"You dont know me at all , so, you cant speak at all of my nature , I am being Fair and accurate as usual."

Of course I don't know you personally, but I know from your previous, biased comments.

"What can I say I aint an anonymous."

Now that is ridiculous. Because my chosen nickname is Anonymous Penguin, I am no more an anonymous than you are. I am a registered user.

"4) Almost no user at all , this mean that they dont have a big budget for development as no one contribute or give donation."

Once again you don't know what you are talking about. And for "somebody with almost no budget" they manage to advertize quite a bit at Distrowatch.

"Distrowatch is a personnal site with some good information , its ranking as no real value in the overall use of a distribution , most of the GNU/Linux user dont read or go to Distrowatch at all."

Yet many of you were screaming blue murder when you lost your first place to Ubuntu.

"Someone who as a niche make a profit , let me repeat that so that you alsmot get it : Someone who as a niche make a profit , doing some part in the market , they are mostly rebranded and stylized Debian core."

Who told you that they don't make a profit? How do they keep going on? For you the only measure of success is money. And yet even you admit that Ubuntu and Knoppix are a success (and "the LinuxTag" excuse doesn't sell)

"No , but then again accurate information dont seem to be something you whant , need or have."

No, it is you who doesn't. They started as Jon and Tal Danzig. When Jon became ill they employed Daniel de Kok. Everything else you say about Libranet doesn't deserve my comment.

"Mandrake dont exist anymore its called Mandriva now , because it acquired Conectiva and the management finally got fed up to pay lawyers."

Everybody is refusing to use that silly name


"The Number of Mandriva user easily pass the number of user of any Debian alone."

Any Debian, what does that mean? There is only one Debian and its derivatives.


"And why nobody choses Mandrake as a basis for their distros?"

http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=independence"

A really impressive list. And PCLinuxOS shouldn't be there, it is a fork.


"Because they are incomplete and broken product and project that you need to really go and start your own project and company to make things change and evolve ... "

Wrong again. Debian is a very flexible metadistro, certainly not broken. Neither is Red Hat, which gets merely cloned (because it is very good and expensive)

Most of the rest of your comment is such a nonsense that I have nothing to say.

"but I know from your previous, biased comments."

I guess you have a selective memory. Or your mistaking me for somebody else.

"Now that is ridiculous."

No , You can select to be any name you whant but you associate with the worst entity on the net , for me people who are or call themself Anonymous are to be threated the same way as if they where nazi. That particular reply also show that you actually dont read my bias posts. I explained that one many time in the past.

"I am no more an anonymous than you are."

Thats my real life name , you cant understand.

"Once again you don't know what you are talking about."

I guess I will have to disagree with you on that one.

"And for "somebody with almost no budget" they manage to advertize quite a bit at Distrowatch. "

Distrowatch is cheap to advertise at ... My point whas/is since they dont have that many user they dont have the budget others have. I never said they dont have a budget.

"Yet many of you were screaming blue murder when you lost your first place to Ubuntu. "

No , what I said ( I whas one of them ) , is that many Ubuntu site are redirecting there user specificaly to Distrowatch , when Yoper did the same they where blocked. Ladislav as a double Standard and is bashing Mandriva at every chance he gets. Also it whas politely pointed out at first , but then degenerated in comment such as "screaming blue murder".

"Who told you that they don't make a profit?"

I asked.

"How do they keep going on?"

Its GPL and free Software , you need only time and to do the packaging work.

"For you the only measure of success is money."

No there is # of users , innovations , quality of the solution, you keep showing that you dont know me at all.

"(and "the LinuxTag" excuse doesn't sell) "

What can I say accuracy and reality and truth are not part of your little world.

"They started as Jon and Tal Danzig. When Jon became ill they employed Daniel de Kok."

Get the complete history then will talk.

"Everything else you say about Libranet doesn't deserve my comment. "

Nothing I say deserve your innacuracies at all , in my view.

"Everybody is refusing to use that silly name "

Everyone seems to be using it and adpating to it , I dont see whats silly about it , its MandrakeSoft + Connectiva.

"Any Debian, what does that mean?"

All of them alone , if not taken as a group.

"A really impressive list."

What can I say most people can and do contribute to Mandriva , instead of not beeing able to make change in the main solution.

"PCLinuxOS shouldn't be there, it is a fork."

No comment on that one. Learn what fork means.

"Debian is a very flexible metadistro"

It dont include 1/3 of what the Debian based have released under the GPL and are open Source. What people like is the central repository.

"certainly not broken."

Instead of always making stupid and clueless comment as usual change and do a real research for once.
