Linux vendor Mandriva now has a presence in Britain after the formation of Mandriva UK Limited. The company said it aims to provide local distribution of Mandriva Linux and other open-source applications throughout the UK.
Mandriva UK said its goal is to develop a nationwide support network for local customers, who will have access to a problem and solutions database, and priority problem solving via a private questions and answers form. This database will be available from July, according to the firm.
The new company is seeking to make Mandriva more widely available through bundling on systems available to corporate and consumer customers.
