The Mandriva Linux distribution has been forked by a number of Mandriva contributors with the fate of this distribution formerly known as Mandrake being unknown due to financial troubles and layoffs facing Mandriva's parent company. This new forked version of Mandriva is being called Mageia.
Not many details about this new Linux distribution are known right now besides that many contributors have already abandoned Mandriva Linux in favor of Mageia.
The Mageia web-site is Mageia.org
, but it's currently lacking much in the way of information.
