End of an era?

I got an email today from Gael Duval, creator of Mandrake Linux (now Mandriva) with an updated set of contact information, notification that he and Mandriva have parted ways, and a heads up about his new project, Ulteo.

It wasn’t his choice – more like a Steve Jobs treatment. If you'd like to have a little more in the way of details, Gael's explaination can be found here.

Way to go, folks. Firing the founder tends to do wonderful things for the company. Look at how Apple was doing during Job’s absence.

In all seriousness though, I’d just like to wish Gael good luck in his new venture.
