Mandriva outlines new products

By Derek Sooman on
Paris, France-based Mandriva has detailed its plans for its Mandriva One live and install CD package and Mandriva Kiosk one-click installation service.

Mandriva One is a new version of the company's Mandriva Linux 2006 distribution that combines the elements of a live CD distribution and an installation package. While Mandriva One will be available completely free of charge, the company is also releasing Kiosk as a paid-for service. Kiosk will include a library of product bundles to make it easier for non-technical users to install Linux packages.
Interestingly, the distribution's creator, Gael Duval, plans to sue Mandriva for "abusive lay-off" since he believed the reasons for his redundancy were economic, rather than performance related.
