Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "After making a lot of progress with Mandriva Linux 2007, I thought perhaps Mandriva had turned over a new leaf, and was using that release as a starting point for an overall better quality operating environment. I was totally wrong. Both the PowerPack Edition and Discovery/LX have slid so far back with version 2007.1 that I have serious doubts as to the future of Mandriva's viability as a commercial desktop operating system."

"Madriva's days may indeed be numbered."

I doubt that their days are numbered. I think that Mandriva is still a very good distro (spring 2007 is a better release than some distros released recently). The only problem with Mandriva is that it does not seem to reach out to the community as much as other distros. Reaching out to the community a bit more would get more users and developers involved in Mandriva.

Yep, I moved on as well, a couple of years ago. This article just serves to remind me why.
