MandrakeSoft to go public

Author: JT Smith

Mandrakesoft yesterday got the formal approval from the COB (Commission
des Operations de Bourse -- the French regulatory organisation) to be
listed on the Euronext european stock market "Marché Libre". The listing
should start on the 3rd of August.

After the recent big success of its Mandrake Linux operating system in
term of market penetration, MandrakeSoft's listing is an important step
for the company to gain still more exposure and more credibility on the
corporate IT markets.

We will soon provide more informations on our web site

Jacques Le Marois, MandrakeSoft's CEO, would like to thank everyone who
helped make this listing possible:

all the Mandrakesoft team that helped to build the company
the shareholders who funded it
the contributors who helped to improve the product
the users who helped by spreading the good word about our products
