Mandriva embraces Lycoris

Mandriva -- formerly Mandrake -- is one of the world's most popular user-level desktop GNU/Linux choices. Now, only a few months after Mandrake extended itself to absorb Conectiva (hence the new "Mandriva") name, it has embraced the small but feature-rich Lycoris distribution. Lycoris founder and CEO Joe Cheek may end up as a Mandriva employee, although this is not certain yet, but Mandriva certainly hopes a substantial percentage of Lycoris's approximately 20,000 paying customers join MandrivaClub. This acquisition may be good for both parties in the long run. But a lot of its success may depend on whether Joe Cheek ends up working for Mandriva or walking away at the end of his current consulting contract, which runs only through this fall.

A recent blog told of my experience with jr. high school teachers and yours truly walking them through the basics of PCLinuxOS and OpenOffice. Just to fill in some of the blanks, I had been working with the administration to try and get them to switch to Open Source Software. This particular school expressed an interest so I volunteered to help train a few teachers and then they could in turn train others.
