After nearly 9 years, Vincent Danen will be leaving Mandriva at the end of this month. Again we would like to thank him for his commitment and endeavour whilst at Mandriva. We wish him every success in his future activities. As he said himself, he was also largely “a pain in the developers’ collective backsides with his push for better security in the Mandriva products” and added that we may have forgiven him “because his heart was in the right place” Smile.

This departure will not leave empty chair, as security is something essential for distribution. We would like to thank oden Eriksson who will be in charge of security team. Welcome back Oden!

You have your Windows in my Linux

Although there are those who think the systemd debate has been decided in favor of systemd, the exceedingly loud protests on message boards, forums, and the posts I wrote over the past two weeks would indicate otherwise. I've seen many declarations of victory for systemd, now that Red Hat has forced it into the enterprise with the release of RHEL 7. I don't think it's that easy. Read more
