While there hasn't been much interest in Mandriva in a few years with derivatives like OpenMandriva and Mageia taking much of the spotlight, Mandriva as a company is now being liquidated.

Per this French posting (translation), this company based out of Paris is being liquidated. Surprisingly, in 2013 the company managed to pull in 553.6k USD, but it wasn't sustainable and now in 2015 the company with 10 to 19 employees left is ending.

As a former Mandrake user, it's a bit of a sad day, but at least Mageia is doing a great job carrying the torch. Those wishing to relive old memories, here's some Mandriva screenshots from back in 2006 during the GNOME2 glory days.
