The 10th anniversary of Mandriva
On Friday May 30th, we were invited to MandrivaÃ¢â¬â¢s 10th anniversary celebration at the Eiffel Tower. This French company, which specializes in producing Linux distributions, was born in 1998. Previously named Mandrake (the famous Ã¢â¬ËmagicianÃ¢â¬â¢), it changed its name after the takeover of Conectiva in 2006. In these 10 years, the company has introduced several innovations in the world of free software and its distribution is one of the worldÃ¢â¬â¢s most popular (although currently in the shadow of Ubuntu).
