Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris It seems that the previous news about Mandriva SA being for sale have been more than simple rumors. Frederic Cuif* (incorrectly unaccented due to limitations in our CMS), active member of the French-speaking Mandriva User Group has summed up the various outcomes and proposed projects he found after contacting several key members of the company in order to gather information. The result of his investigation can be found on his blog, along with a detailed analysis of the Mandriva business model and the proposed outcomes, from a renewed interest in the distribution and the community from Linagora, potential buyer, to what could be the end of the Mandriva adventure if nothing is done. (Thanks to everybody who submitted this)

That is weird. I have distributed Mandriva/Mandrake CD for more than a decade and didn't even know Mandriva had a lawyer. Especially in the Mandrake days. Actually I'm pretty sure they didn't have a lawyer or that lawyer was a fucking idiot not to alert them about Mandrake the Magician. With 10 employees or so, I'm curious how they found out about you distributing their CD "illegally". If you distributed them by the millions, how come I have never heard about you?
