Origin of the distribution
OpenMandriva Lx is a community Linux distribution. Originally an offering of Mandriva Linux, the OpenMandriva product was created in May, 2012, when Mandriva SA avoided bankruptcy by abandoning the development of its consumer product to the Mandriva community. The first stable version (OpenMandriva Lx 2013 "Oxygen") was released in late 2013.
In late 2013, the first version of OpenMandriva Lx was released. It was based on Mandriva Linux 2011, which was itself an amalgamation of Rosa Linux and Mandriva SA.
OpenMandriva Lx 2014 "Phosphorus" was released on 1 May 2014. The release had a very positive review from one of the founders of the initial Mandrake Linux distribution, Gaël Duval.
The latest stable version is OpenMandriva Lx 2014.1, a bugfix release for 2014.0. It was released on 26 September 2014.
