Mandriva 2011 RC 1 Released, Almost

Filed under
MDV

Eugeni Dodonov announced the release of Mandriva 2011 RC1 earlier, but I'm still waiting for it to hit mirrors. He did actually said it was "coming," so his announcement could be considered a big ole tease. In fact, I hate it when a release is announced and we have to keep checking the mirrors for it to actually become available. But they do this every time.

Anyway, he said, "The images are built and are undergoing an internal testing right now, and unless any critical issues are discovered, they will be pushed to the mirrors in the coming hours!"

Re: Mandriva 2011 RC1

Yes, just checked the first-updated French mirrors, and they're still at beta 3.

Among the list of changes, I see they've finally incorporated the Mandriva Control Center into KDE's "System Settings".

They've got to do something to differentiate themselves from the free (and very good) release of Mageia1. The Mandriva forums are starting to look like a ghost town.

ghost town

Mandriva forum is still active. Mageia forum is dead as hell.

Open Source Software A Core Competency For Effective Tech M&A

Imagine your company just acquired its competitor for $100 million. Now imagine the company’s most important asset – its proprietary software – is subject to third-party license conditions that require the proprietary software to be distributed free of charge or in source code form. Or, imagine these license conditions are discovered late in the diligence process, and the cost to replace the offending third-party software will costs tens of thousands of dollars and take months to remediate. Both scenarios exemplify the acute, distinct and often overlooked risks inherent to the commercial use of open source software. An effective tech M&A attorney must appreciate these risks and be prepared to take the steps necessary to mitigate or eliminate them. Over the past decade, open source software has become a mainstay in the technology community. Since its beginnings, open source software has always been viewed as a way to save money and jumpstart development projects, but it is increasingly being looked to for its quality solutions and operational advantages. Today, only a fraction of technology companies do not use open source software in any way. For most of the rest, it is mission critical. Read more
