scoopy Posted April 1, 2005 Report Share Posted April 1, 2005 from and article posted here @ http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/426 There's an interesting thread running on one of the mandrake mailing lists discussing the possibility of an upcoming name change since their buy out of Connectiva. Seems there may be some truth to the rumors as a whois it might prove. A quick "whois" here showed the following ".com's" taken too: 1 mandriva 2 antelmandrivas 3 mandrivabizcases 4 mandrivaclub 5 mandrivaexpert 6 mandrivalinux 7 mandrivaonline 8 mandrivapartner 9 mandrivasecure 10 mandrivasoft 11 mandrivastore WTH is a Mandriva ? Personally, it sounds like a dumb name that could lend itself to some even dumber nicknames and stuff. Off the top of my head --- I think Mandrake-Connect sounds a lot better and more marketable. Those domains remain available. Didn't someone just say in another thread that there was no French word for marketing? :lol: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
