Creator of Mandrake Linux no longer with the company that develops the distribution he created

The founder of Mandrake Linux has been let go from the company he helped to create.

Since 2005, Mandrake, has been known as Mandriva following its $2.3 million dollar purchase of Conectiva.

Gael Duval has confirmed rumors first posted on a Mandriva forum posting that he is no longer with Mandriva.

"Since the information has leaked, I will post a message in the next few days on this Web site (or mirror) about why this is the end of the Mandriva story for me, and what's next," Duval wrote in a blog posting.

Duval originally created Mandrake Linux in 1998. Mandrake in its various corporate incarnations has not always had an easy go of it. Mandrakesoft, which was co-founded by Duval, filed for bankruptcy protection in 2003 after not having reporting a profit since 1999. The company emerged from bankruptcy in 2004.
