Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris If there's one Linux company that has seen lots of ups and downs it's the Paris-based Mandriva S.A. They have a great distribution, but as a company, they've always been on shaky grounds. First a rumour, now confirmed: the company has put itself up for sale - which, as the community points out, isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Worst solution

I worked for Linagora for one year. They are probably the worst company to continue Mandriva work.

They care a lot about making money (which is ok for a company), crushing other companies (a bit less ok) and they do not care at all about contributing to free software.

They have one of the highest turn-over in France due to their great HR capabilities and are almost universally hated by former employees and the whole French IT ecosystem.

In short, they are the nastiest, most vicious sharks navigating the French IT waters.
