Software

With Rygel, users will be able to browse the media collection from the TV or PS3 on a PC running GNOME, and they will have the possibility to play any of said media.

  • Finally! It's the year of Linux on the desktop TITSUP
    Mandriva, a French purveyor of desktop Linux, is being wound up, after becoming totally incapable of supporting usual performance (TITSUP), financially at least. The liquidation notice suggests the company's 2013 was around €600,000 and that the company has between 10 and 19 staff.
  • Goodbye, Mandriva, Thank You for the Mandriva Linux OS
    It is with sadness in our hearts that we inform you today, May 27, about the termination of the French Mandriva company, which is currently in the process of being liquidated, according to a notice posted on the societe.com website.
  • A Linux company that spent 17 years competing with Windows is officially over
    It also had some success in Malaysia. But by 2012, the company was on the brink of bankruptcy, a situation that had happened several times since its early days, in 1998. It was saved for a few more years by Jean-Manuel Croset, who joined as COO in 2011 and soon after became CEO.
