MandrakeSoft reports strong increase in consolidated revenue for second quarter
From MandrakeSoft.com: After the sales in the First Quarter of the 2001-2002 fiscal year showed little change in comparison with the previous year, MandrakeSoft has seen a significant rise in the Second with the turnover increasing by 155% to Eur0.97Million. This is particularly noteworthy, as sales in Q2 and Q4 can reasonably be expected to be lower than the other two since they do not benefit from the 'launch effect' of new versions of Mandrake Linux. For example, the new 8.2 version of Mandrake Linux was launched in the beginning of April 2002 (Q3).
