Mandriva sees a corporate Linux desktop in your future

Filed under
MDV

Mandriva CEO Francois Bancilhon stopped by the offices of SearchOpenSource.com this week as part of an effort to get the word out about Mandriva Linux 2006.

Through a series of international partnerships, Bancilhon has taken his company out of the depths of bankruptcy and into the black. Speaking with him this week as he made the rounds in the Northeast, it was easy to see that he expected to take that same company-specific success and apply it to Linux desktops, both for personal and professional use.

Bancilhon may have his work cut out for him, but he aims to keep things simple to attain big results.

What will 2006 mean for the Linux desktop? What do you see driving increased Linux desktop adoption in 2006?

Full Interview.
