Goodbye Vincent, welcome back Oden!

MDV

After nearly 9 years, Vincent Danen will be leaving Mandriva at the end of this month. Again we would like to thank him for his commitment and endeavour whilst at Mandriva. We wish him every success in his future activities. As he said himself, he was also largely “a pain in the developers’ collective backsides with his push for better security in the Mandriva products” and added that we may have forgiven him “because his heart was in the right place” Smile.

This departure will not leave empty chair, as security is something essential for distribution. We would like to thank oden Eriksson who will be in charge of security team. Welcome back Oden!

  • Developer Implements Netflix in SteamOS
    A developer has put together some tools (still under construction) that would allow users to use SteamOS to play Netflix. It's in its early stages, but the developer has made something that Valve hasn't even thought about until now.

Elsewhere, Jack Germain said, "Simplicity Linux is easy to use and runs fast" and Swapnil Bhartiya shared his secret to converting users to Linux. Read more
