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

Another stupid Distro name.

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

Imodium OS

I can see it now. Get Imodium OS and replace your shitty distro! LOL
