+ - Developers fork Mandriva Linux, creating Mageia-> 1

Submitted by Anssi55
Anssi55 (729722) writes "As most of the Mandriva employees working on the Linux distribution were laid off due to the liquidation of Edge-IT (a subsidiary of Mandriva SA) and the trust in the company has diminished, the development community (including the core developers) has decided to fork the project. The new Linux distribution, named Mageia, will be managed by a not-for-profit organization that will be set up in the coming days. There are already many people that have decided to follow the fork, but the people behind it are still welcoming any help offered in the various tasks related to establishing the new distribution."

+ - CBS Orders 7 More Episodes of Jericho->

Submitted by Anssi
Anssi (729722) writes "CBS has announced that they have ordered 7 more episodes of Jericho, the show which was canceled after the first season. The fan campaign involving sending nuts to CBS seems to have been successful, and if the ratings will be good, more episodes will be ordered. Quoting the message from CBS: "On behalf of everyone at CBS, thank you for expressing your support of Jericho in such an extraordinary manner. Your protest was creative, sustained and very thoughtful and respectful in tone. You made a difference.""
