The foundation behind Madriva Linux has got a new name. OpenMandriva was chosen based on an online poll of users and by Mandriva SA, the software company behind Mandriva Linux. Though the foundation’s name has been fixed, the name of the distro is yet to be decided.You can view the poll results at this page. Top choices were Mandala Linux, Moondrake and Drake Linux.
Earlier it was decided that Mandriva will become a community based project and will focus on desktop, while its fork, Mageia will be used for servers. This decision was taken to further boost Mandriva development and give better quality of software.
Mandriva Linux is one of the oldest GNU/Linux distro still alive today.
