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.

Lesson learnt: Do enough marketing. Shipit is just a part of marketing.

Although it got Ubuntu started, the money for ShipIt ended a long time ago as will Mark Shuttleworth's money for all of that 'marketing' fairly soon. Benefactors' pockets are not limitless.

Anyway we moved off-topic. We were discussing why Ubuntu does not contribute rather than who has more money.

Then do so.
