Mandriva is now forked as Mageia

Filed under
MDV




Mandriva continues to live on....

Now that the much detested company is out of the way...Mageia will be the Mandriva that it was always supposed to be- easy to use, fast, stable...yet not too far behind the curve. Kudos to this fork, it was due for a long time....but as they say- Better late than never

well..

Well, some of the detested company is out of the way, Anne Nicholas apparently is not gone, though.
Personally I am optimistic about Mandriva now that some people actually put money in it and want some revenue.
As for Mageia, well, good luck to them, but as a fork they still pretty much depend on Mandriva S.A.. So we need to have a good Mandriva distribution first.

re: Mageia

Lets hope they take a few doses of Imodium and get that stopped right away.

Imodium OS

The company asserts its Ansible Tower helps enterprises cut through the complexities of modern IT environments with powerful automation capabilities that improve productivity and reduce downtime. “Today’s business demands can mean even greater complexity for many organisations.

    Open-source software provider Red Hat has revised its Patent Promise, which was initially intended to discourage patent aggression against free and open-source software. The expanded version of the defensive patent aggregation scheme extends the zone of non-enforcement to all of Red Hat’s patents and all software under “well-recognised” open-source licenses. In its original Patent Promise in 2002, Red Hat said software patents are “inconsistent with open-source and free software”.

Add-on board expands i.MX6 UL SBC

MYIR released an add-on board for its Linux-driven, i.MX6 UL-based MYS-6ULX SBC that adds a second LAN port, plus CAN, RS485, camera, audio, and RTC. In April, MYIR released a Linux-powered MYS-6ULX SBC, which was notable for being available in two different versions using NXP’s low power, Cortex-A7 i.MX6 UltraLite (UL) or the more affordable, and almost identical i.MX6 ULL SoC. Now, MYIR has released an “MYB-6ULX Expansion Board” designed to stack onto either model. The $21.20 accessory adds a second 10/100 Ethernet port to the MYS-6ULX, as well as new CAN, RS485, audio, micro-USB, RTC, and camera functions. Read more
