Mandriva Powers Up a Serious Business-Server Linux
The company's Mandriva Corporate Server 4, an attempt to compete with RHEL and SLES, should be interoperable with products from other LSB-compliant vendors. (Linux-Watch)Mandriva Linux, formerly Mandrake Linux, on Sept. 14 will ship a major upgrade to its business server-oriented Linux distribution. The company claims that Mandriva Corporate Server 4 is fully compliant with the LSB (Linux Standard Base), and therefore should have interoperability with products from other LSB-compliant vendors. Mandriva was once best known for its popular community-driven Linux.
Since 2005 though, CEO François Bancilhon has been pointing the company towards the business market.
