Obviously, the news is an April Fool:
On the 1st of April, Mandriva S.A. Has released a short press release stating its intention to invest in the Formula One car racing industry, claiming it would build the next generation operating systems for cars. This was our way to celebrate April Fool’s Day, and we hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have. However, we would like to take this opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to openness and innovation.

Since 2012, Mandriva has effectively repositioned its strategy and released new products that aim at the professional market. But we didn’t just do that for the sake of releasing new products. We have developed products (lien vers MBS) by listening to our customers and investing in innovation (lien vers Pulse). We have strengthened our commitment to openness and have stayed true to the community. Today and even more tomorrow, our results will speak by themselves: Mandriva is back.
