Saving Mandriva

Fast-forward to today, and a new strategy. With a fresh injection of cash both from the Paris regional government and from Swiss investor Jean-Manuel Croset, the company is making up with its community and making bold plans for the future. Croset has taken over as CEO and has fresh, pragmatic ideas about how Mandriva can rise like a phoenix from the ashes of past mismanagement. He’s brought OpenOffice and LibreOffice community veteran Charles-Henri Schulz on board as marketing manager to drive a renewal of community relations – a positively received development.
