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)

perhas Canonical should hire them to take care of Kubuntu?

Not only Kubuntu. Mandriva -- unlike Canonical -- has actual operating system (kernel, Xorg,...) developers.
If Canonical took over Mandriva (which I doubt, btw) Canonical could suddenly fix their own bugs instead of filing its bugs into Red Hat's bug tracker: http://airlied.livejournal.com/72817.html
