OpenMandriva Is Working On A Server Linux Distribution
Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 20 December 2015 at 08:10 AM EST. 2 Comments
OpenMandriva has largely been a desktop-focused Linux distribution but now apparently they have set their sights on assembling a server offering.

OpenMandriva's Kate Lebedeff has shared with us that the project is assembling a server distribution. OpenMandriva OMLxs Server is intended to be a stable environment for Docker, includes AuFS kernel support, and includes Nginx, Docker, Fail2ban, and other server-related packages.

These few initial details can be found via this blog post. It will be interesting if OpenMandriva can gain any traction in the server space considering there hasn't been much to report from them recently in the desktop space and *Mandriva distributions haven't been quite as popular since the original Mandrake days. OpenMandriva 2014.2 remains their current latest stable release.
