Though Linux was originally command line based, many of the features that make current distributions user friendly originated from Mandriva.
In the late 1990s, Gael Duval engaged in a mission to make Linux more accessible for computer users at all experience levels.
He formed Mandrakesoft and worked to create the Mandrake OS that was based on Red Hat Linux.
As a result of his efforts to integrate user friendly features, the distribution grew in popularity and became known as one of the easiest Linux distributions to work with.
The company continued to produce various releases until 2011, when it began to have financial difficulties. But even though Mandriva releases have stopped, it still lives on through its various forks.
Mandriva Linux contains many user friendly features that still exist today.
To expand its reach into Latin America, Mandrakesoft bought Conectiva, a Brazilian company.
It then changed its name and the OS name to Mandriva.
By dialog procedures the system is established, the kind of installation can with or without surfaces, development, console tools as well as server applications be selected comfortably.
