    I wish they just put their effort into SolusOS or a similar distro that desperately needs help instead of reinventing Mandriva again.

      Well, SolusOS is dead. Why did they even split form Mint?

      OpenMandriva, in many respects, is better. They just need to update the MCC tools.

        Are you sure SolusOS ever had anything to do with Mint? I don’t think so… Anyway, it wouldn’t be dead if there was anyone to work on it. But, unrelated to SolusOS, who is the target audience for another reinvention of a long forgotten distro? We already have Mageia, mind you. I value all effort put into Linux or any open source, I just think this one could be more useful elsewhere. Can you really see this distro surviving a few years?

          That’s the nature of Free Software. You can’t stop anyone from starting their own distribution of software project. If they succeed, great, if not, well…

          I would like people to focus more on applications, then distributions, because I think we have more than enough of those. Most of these distributions don’t even bring anything new to the table, but, like I said, you can’t stop freedom.

            I don’t think SolusOS ever had anything to do with Mint, in the first place. Anyway, it would not have died if it had people to work on it. But, most importantly and unrelated to Solus or any other distro, who is the target audience for yet another reinvention of a long forgotten Mandriva? We already have Mageia, filling the gap quite well, mind you.
            As I said, I highly value any and all effort invested in Linux or other open source. I just think in this specific case it could have been utilized better.

            Oops, sorry for the double post. My internet hicked up.
            And yes, I fully agree on all points, and I too would very much love if the applications got more attention. And drivers maybe even more.

    I value of everybody’s effort, but who is the audience for this distro?
