Mandriva's CEO should rehire Adam Williamson. He has been the PR and backbone of the mandriva's community and losing him will be a great loss to us all.
We are aware of the financial situation of Mandriva S.A., but the decision of firing Mr. Williamson will only cause the loss of one of the most precious assets Mandriva has. The continuous flow of news and information, which is necessary to give popularity and visibility to the distro was mainly in Adam’s hands during the last years. He wrote news, commented reviews, helped users in trouble and explained the Mandriva choices to all the community, bridging the gap between the company and the users. Not only, he did all these things with passion and kindness, always respecting different opinions and hearing users suggestions.
