Mandriva Delays Bankruptcy Decision





mandrivaIn a short post today Jean-Manuel Croset said that recent events have lead the failing company to postpone any final decisions for a week. Earlier this month a letter to shareholders stated that Mandriva would have to close its doors by January 16 without an influx of capital.

January 16 came and went without word while anxious users paced the floors over at the Mandriva Forums. Then earlier today Croset published his post. Unfortunately, it’s a little short on detail.

All we know now is that someone is interested in buying Mandriva, but it’s still in the talking stage. It sounds as though Mandriva is hoping for an official written offer by January 23. If it comes through, and the check clears, Mandriva may be saved.

I said it last time, Mandriva always seems to pull some benefactor out of the hat at the last minute every time. Let’s hope there’s a little of that magic left this time. Croset said they would let us know on January 23 the future of Mandriva.
