Mandriva To Use Mageia For Their Business Servers

May 22, 2012, 14:00 (0 Talkback[s])

Mandriva, the company behind the GNU/Linux based distribution with same name, recently announced that they are giving the control of the distribution to the community. CEO of Mandriva SA, Jean-Manuel Croset, wrote, "After reviewing all your messages, suggestions, ideas and comments, Mandriva SA took the decision to transfer the responsibility of the Mandriva Linux distribution to an independent entity."

The development raised questions about the role Mandriva fork Mageia will play in this community controlled Mandriva. Mandriva clarifies that there will be active collaboration between the two teams. For their server product, Mandriva will collaborate with the Mageia community.

We approached the Mageia team for their inputs but have not heard anything from them yet. However, my thinking was right. The Mageia team has posted a blog about their role in the new Mandriva.
