Mandriva is alive!

,----[ Quote ]
| Mandriva is one of the cornerstones of Open 
| Source, a technological pioneer offering the 
| sole independent Linux distribution on the 
| European market. Nevertheless the company has 
| been faced with a mounting financial 
| challenge for several years due in part to 
| its size and lack of a clear publishing 
| strategy.
| Mandriva also plays a strategic role in the 
| Paris Saclay innovative ecosystem centred on 
| the Pole System@tic Paris Region and Cap 
| Digital. The company is involved in a dozen 
| R&D projects in partnership with some 60 
| research and industrial laboratories working 
| on themes such as the semantic desktop, Linux 
| Real Time distribution, shared 
| infrastructures or cloud computing. 


Mandriva Linux 2010.1 Finally Released

,----[ Quote ]
| The Spring version of the popular Mandriva 
| Linux distribution is now available for 
| download on mirrors worldwide. With the 
| release of Mandriva Linux 2010.1 âSpring,â 
| we definitely know that Mandriva is alive 
| and kicking. The final release comes in 
| three editions: One Edition, Free Edition 
| and Powerpack Edition. Mandriva Linux 
| 2010.1 is available for both 32-bit and 
| 64-bit architectures, with GNOME and KDE4 
| LiveCDs.



Moving to mandriva?!

,----[ Quote ]
| Never thought I would be writing this, but I
| am actually considering moving my Linux
| boxes (based mainly in OpenSuSE and Fedoras)
| to Mandriva! During my hey days we always
| considered Mandrake (it's name then)
| something of a play distribution or a
| distribution for Linux beginners and should
| not be used for 'serious' work.
| Fast forward about 10 years, after a name
| change I don't know why suddenly I felt an
| urge to pick up the latest version of
| Mandriva 2010 to give it the proverbial
| spin. After playing around with the bought
| version of Mandriva (yes I actually bought a
| copy!). I really started liking it. Let me
| just list down a few of the reasons why.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
