Mandriva reports its 3rd Quarter results

Paris, November 18th 2008 - Mandriva today reported its financial and operating results for the 3rd quarter 2008. Turnover for the quarter is 0.83 million Euros, trading revenue is 1.04 million Euros, costs are 1.67 million Euros and the operating loss is 0.64 million Euros.

Turnover and operating results, compared with the 3rd quarter 2007, were 29 per cent down, costs fell by 5 per cent. The company underlines the prudent management of operating costs which fell by 5 per cent. Mandriva's continuing operations reveal a loss of 1.17 million euros YTD. The trading loss for the comparable period is down by more than 50 per cent.

Turnover was affected by lower-than-expected OEM trading which remains a significant sector for short and mid-term development for Mandriva.

The OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) turnover represents 17 per cent of the total, the business turnover comes to 64 per cent, and the Community (Linux users) turnover makes up 19 per cent.

Mandriva Mini, a solution devoted to OEMs and ODMs (Original Design Manufacturers), represents a major growth route.

Improvement actions include the distribution of the first Mandriva-based Netbooks following the last road book schedule.

The business market saw the highly successful deployment of Pulse 2 across 18,000 machines which is currently being extended to 85,000 machines on 1,200 sites.

With more than 100,000 machines, Pulse 2 is the open source leader in
heterogeneous IT stock management. A large number of public and private sector organisations in Europe, notably those having planned a migration to Vista® or Linux, have expressed an interest on Pulse 2.

The Community sector has seen new revenue growth through a system of affiliations.

Mandriva Linux 2009 was launched in October and Mandriva Flash 2009 is scheduled for release in December 2008.

4MLinux 20.1 released.

This is a minor maintenance release in the 4MLinux STABLE channel. The release ships with the Linux kernel 4.4.34, which restores PAE support that "magically" disappeared in 4MLinux 20.0 (sorry :-). Additionally, some popular programs (Double Commander, Dropbox, Firefox, Java RE, Opera, PeaZip, Thunderbird, Wine) have been updated, too. Read more

Refracta 8.0 Is a Pint-Sized Powerhouse

Refracta is a somewhat obscure Linux distribution that offers exceptional functionality and stability. Obscurity is not always a bad thing when it comes to Linux distros. You can find some very worthwhile alternatives to your current operating system. Refracta is a big surprise in a small package. Many look-alike desktop distros are difficult to distinguish from run-of-the-mill garden varieties. Others offer new adopters something unique that makes using them fun and productive. Refracta is one of the few full-service Linux distros that makes an easy and more convenient replacement for pocket Linux options such as Puppy Linux. Not all Linux distros that install to a USB drive -- and have the ability to save files and system settings in a persistent mode -- work equally well. Read more

Clear Linux With Mesa 13 Is A Strong Match For Intel Linux Performance

When benchmarking Intel's Clear Linux distribution earlier this year we found its Intel graphics performance to be quite good and slightly faster than other Linux distributions even when Clear was using an older version of Mesa. Now with Clear Linux having switched to Mesa 13, I decided to run some fresh Intel OpenGL benchmarks on it compared to other distributions. Read more

PTS: PHP 7.1 vs. PHP 7.0 vs. HHVM Benchmarks

With today's PHP 7.1 release, performance isn't highlighted as much as language improvements to this first major update to PHP7, but I decided to run some PHP 7.1, PHP 7.0, PHP 5.6, PHP 5.5, and HHVM benchmarks of our open-source Phoronix Test Suite code-base. These self-tests of the Phoronix Test Suite aren't the conventional PHP workload of just a CMS, blog, or other web application that can be cached, etc, but effectively of a PHP CLI application. So keep this in mind when looking at the results and that your mileage may vary depending upon use-case. Read more
