Mandriva: Nine Priorities for Mandriva Incoming CEO

Filed under
MDV

As everybody^wnobody know, Hervé YAHI is no longer the CEO of Mandriva. So I decide to rip off an article from The VAR Guy to issue an open letter to the Mandriva direction. So here are 9 priorities for the new Mandriva staff :

1. A New Community: Sure, Mandriva has a strong open source community. And ??? will should work to strengthen that community, especially when seeing the clashes between Mandriva and its community. Still the new staff needs to strengthen a different type of community — a Mandriva business ecosystem that includes hardware and software partners, service providers, channel partners and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers).

2. Strengthen the Server Story: To date, Mandriva is known mostly as a desktop and mobile operating system, with relatively strong market share in the netbook market. But Mandriva recently launched its Mandriva Enterprise Server 5 and Pulse 2. Meanwhile, ???? offers some support of MES — as do upstarts like ??? and ???. But Mandriva needs more server partners… And whenever a noteworthy customer embraces Mandriva Enterprise Server, Mandriva needs to get the word out.

3. Show CloudCluster/Grid Success or Mobile success:

Rest here

So now what is going to happen?

If Microsoft was hoping to see quick marketshare wins in Europe once its hands were fully on the levers of production that has not come to pass. The latest 12-week smartphone sales figures from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, up to this September, indicate that Windows Phone’s already small share of the smartphone market has shrunk in Europe — dropping 0.3 percentage points in aggregate across the top five markets in Europe (the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany).
