Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Somewhere in 2001, I bought a computer magazine which came with a Linux CD. I had heard of Linux before, but while we did have broadband back then and was technically capable of downloading a Linux distribution, this method was far easier. This was my first foray into Linux - it was Mandrake. Now, though, it seems the curtain has really dropped for the French Linux company.

They have competent management who hasnt repeatedly run the company bankrupt?

You confuse rich and competent. Canonical is loosing much more money than Mandriva. They just have a billionaire to back them up for now.
