The OpenMandriva community is moving on. The statutes of the ďOpenMandriva AssociationĒ have been sent to the French authorities and the incorporation process has thus started. At the same time, preparations are ongoing to migrate both the actual development environment of the distribution and the entire community infrastructure. On top of this, the development environment is not just migrated to another server, it is being upgraded to ABF and Git.

We have been busy behind the scenes determining the necessary processes and resources needed for the future foundation. This is an ongoing work, but of course itís not a closed process; itís just that the group who met in Paris has a lot of homework to do before we can present a clear picture to the community, so that the community might be in charge of the foundation and of its own destiny. Today is the beginning of a new step in this direction.

Just days after the Mandriva community started its own plans for the next release of the French Linux distribution, its commercial sponsor has formally announced that the community will take the lead on all Mandriva Linux development moving forward.
In a blog post on the Mandriva SA site, CEO Jean-Manuel Croset ceded control of the Mandriva Linux distribution back to the community at large.

A post has emerged from the Mandriva camp today and it even gives a dab of information on the future of Mandriva. They have put out a call to interested parties to speak out and let their thoughts be known.
Jean-Manuel Croset, Mandriva COO, said today that they'd like to get "the opinion and ideas of the community, as well as to feel how strong you are." He says that the desktop distribution has been their foundational product and that its community is a necessary element of that.

Signs are not good that Mandriva will be continuing much longer in its current state.
That's the news coming out of France this week, as rumors and vague confirmations point to the French Linux company possibly shuttering its doors on January 16. The reason? An apparent shareholder fight that is blocking an influx of much-needed capital.

Some time ago, I stopped paying attention to Mandriva. I felt that this Linux distribution, which hails from France and is financially backed by Russia, wasnít quite sure what it wanted to be. All has changed now. Mandriva knows where it is and where itís heading. Mandriva Linux Powerpack 2011 is available for purchase and is one of the finest releases I have come across in quite some time. What makes it so good? Letís break it down

Based on its new product strategy, Mandriva changes the release procedure, aiming
for a one-year period between major releases. However, Mandriva will also release
updated versions of its products on a periodic time on a 6-month basis.

I tested Mandriva 2011 "Hydrogen" on a live USB, first made with MultiSystem and then made with UnetBootin. I was surprised that Mandriva booted after having the live USB made with UnetBootin, because for the last few years Mandriva ISO files have failed to work right with UnetBootin.

Mandriva Linux's latest release is testament to the work done by developers to make it one of the easiest to use Linux releases ever.
Despite ongoing financial woes, Mandriva Linux developers have delivered the latest version of this popular desktop Linux operating system. Mandriva Linux 2010.2 is the latest in a long line of Mandriva releases from the company that used to be known as Mandrake Linux, and it every bit as user-friendly as promised.
