Interview: Mandriva CEO Francois Bancilhon

Interviews

MandrivaLinux (formerly MandrakeLinux) will shortly introduce a new round of releases for its Corporate Server, Corporate Desktop, and PowerPack Edition GNU/Linux distributions. While preparing to review these operating systems I sent some interview questions to Mandriva's CEO, Francois Bancilhon.

How are things going with the integration of Conectiva and Lycoris?

Francois Bancilhon: Integration of Lycoris was mainly done with the release of Mandriva 2006, where Lycoris technology was incorporated into the distro, we were satisfied with the result. Integration of Conectiva is now completely done and we are one single company with one leg in Europe and one leg in South America, with about the same amount of people in each location.

It's been about six months since Mandrake founder Gael Duval was fired from Mandriva. Any regrets at this point?
