Mageia ? A New Linux Distribution
Paris, September 18th 2010
"As you may have heard, the future of the Mandriva Linux distribution is unclear.
Most employees working on the distribution were laid off when Edge-IT was liquidated. We do not trust the plans of Mandriva SA anymore and we don't think the company (or any company) is a safe host for such a project.
Many things have happened in the past 12 years. Some were very nice: the Mandriva Linux community is quite large, motivated and experienced, the distribution remains one of the most popular and an award-winning product, easy to use and innovative. Some other events did have some really bad consequences that made people not so confident in the viability of their favourite distribution.
People working on it just do not want to be dependent on the economic fluctuations and erratic, unexplained strategic moves of the company.
Mageia is a community project: it will not depend on the fate of a particular company."
