Mandriva Receives Reprieve, Future Still Uncertain

In his usual man-of-a-few-words manner today, Jean-Manuel Croset, Mandriva COO, announced that enough funds have been secured to allow Mandriva to keep its doors open and continue development. With Croset saying little else, users at least have a nugget of good news to sustain them. Last month Croset solicited user input as to the direction the company might go. He specifically mentioned Mandriva's strong commitment to desktop Linux, leading one to think he'd really like to lead the company to a more community-based desktop distribution model. But as we learned from watching the formation of The Document Foundation and The Mageia Foundation, it takes a tremendous effort from many skilled contributors to be...

Study Says iOS Still Trumps Android at Work

There is no doubt that, despite being a very young mobile operating system, Android has achieved considerable success, and Android smartphones are directly challenging the iPhone's hegemony. And yet, we've made the point before that Android still hasn't cracked the business market. Do you work in a large enterprise, where the technology you use is overseen by IT administrators who set rules? If you do, you may have already encountered restrictions on running Android devices and open source applications. Even at large, Silicon Valley-based technology companies, users often cannot choose Android phones as company-issued devices. Now, a new study suggests that even enterprise users who are free to pick their own mobile devices for work use still overwhelmingly favor the iPhone.  Good Technology, which makes mobile security and collaboration tools, is out with its quarterly study on mobile usage patterns, which "provides a breakdown of smartphone and tablet devices activated amongst Good’s enterprise customers, which include eight of the top 10 financial institutions, seven of...
