Man driver

It says for me, like 'slave driver'.

Although I think Mandriva is the easiest and certainly one the leading, most advanced Linux distros available I have always been freaked out by the amount of occult symbology surrounding their products (anyone for some Mandrake?)- check out the artwork for 2008- its hinting that they want Mandriva to become integrated into the human genome, part of out DNA or something like that

"In a few years you'll be running Mandriva INTERNALLY"

is what its saying their intent is to me!

Mandrake 7.1 was the first Linux distro I ever used. AFAIK, the name "Mandrake" and the artwork that accompanied it had more to do with Mandrake The Magician, a classic comic strip from the '40s, than the occult.
