Mageia 1 is a GNU/Linux distribution for your computer, released by the Mageia community.
What is in it?
Plenty! See the release notes for an extensive exposé.
Mageia in context
Mageia began in September 2010 as a fork of Mandriva Linux. It is supported by a not-for-profit organisation, governed by a body of recognized and elected contributors, and made by 100+ people around the world.
Our work adds to the excellent work of the wider Linux and Free Software community. We aim to bring one of the best, most stable, reliable and enjoyable experience and platform we can make; for a regular user, a developer, or a business.
And we encourage you to be part of it, on your own time or through your professional activity.
9 months from inception we have reached:
100+ contributors in 10+ teams. 180+ generous donors of 11.700+ EUR with only 4.700 spent so far and 20.000 forecast for 2011.
5 intermediary technical releases. 7.389 source packages, 2 × 14.226 binary packages for 2 architectures (i586 and x86_64 – ARM is on its way).
7 servers, 3 datacenters (Paris and Marseille, France), 19 mirrors worldwide.
21-language localized Website, 161-languages localized distribution.
All this for one distribution, ready for you, now.
How many users? Time will tell.
But more important than vanity figures: what will it do for you?
