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.
