And I guess a more general thought - does such a fork basically kill
Mandriva as a distro? And maybe they don't pick up the slack? Because
if I have to move all my computers and servers off of mandriva to
something else and it's NOT a seamless upgrade, then I'm going to
evaluate all the distros for the best way to go - they may not get any
or all of Mandriva's slack.
