10 years, time to change

It has been 10 years since I joined a small company called MandrakeSoft at that time.

When I first arrived, I was asked "What do you want to work on ?" and I said "I don't know, I use GNOME at home..." and you know the story ;)

Now is a good time to change, so I'm leaving Mandriva at the end of this month (I'm already off, so don't search me on irc / mail ).

It has been a pleasure to work everybody in Mandriva company and community.


  1. Well, I said it on-list and I'll say it again: Thank you very much for being such a guiding force behind GNOME on what's considered to be a KDE distro.

    I'll look forward to news of your next adventures. In the meantime, congratulations on your recent PACS and best wishes for your personal and professional lives!

  2. Best of luck with whatever you're off to next, and enjoy the holiday. :) -daniels

  3. Fred, I hope you the best, wherever you go, I hope I'll still see you online :)

  4. thanks very much for all your work over the years (my HTPC still runs GNOME on Mandriva :>). good luck!

  5. Thanks a lot for your work. All the best for a better, more enjoyable and more happy career.
