Mandriva’s mission

Mandriva is the pan European and BRIC Linux distribution for all: enterprises and individuals, beginners or most advanced users.


Mandriva recovered from a difficult situation. The recovery was done through restructuring the debts, a simplification of the organization, a new investor and a new strategic focus. Mandriva wants :

> to empower, as much as possible, its community,

> to aggressively innovate on the desktop,

> to create a specific education activity and distribution,
and finally to improve its server distribution and products.


The Mandriva Community will be autonomous and governance structures will be created to ensure freedom. The Mandriva enterprise is just an element of this independent community.

From a desktop point of view, Mandriva intends to be the BEST KDE DISTRIBUTION IN THE WORLD.

The president of the Open Source Initiative, Allison Randal, participated as a co-author in the drafting of the principles, together with the leadership of FSF and Conservancy. The Open Source Initiative's mission centers on advocating for and supporting efforts to improve community best practices, in order to promote and protect open source (founded on the principles of free software). While the OSI's work doesn't include legal enforcement actions for the GPL or any of the family of licenses that conform to the Open Source Definition, we applaud these principles set forth by the FSF and Conservancy, clearly defining community best practices around GPL enforcement.
