Number of Pages[edit]

Since the Mageia organization is brand new, and the distro certainly doesn't even exist yet, I don't see a need for two pages- one for the organization and one for the distribution. It might be wise to separate the two later. The creation of the page has no references, because the information was only obtained from the announcement posted on their main website as the main page. They have no other sub-pages. It is highly likely that information will disappear, be replaced, or moved somewhere else in a short time.--Crxssi (talk) 22:52, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

Someone removed the proposed logo, which is perfectly fine if it is not going to be used (it was mostly just a placeholder, and was clearly marked as "one of several proposed logos"). However, if you remove or edit anything on the page, it is good practice to state what you are doing and *why*. This can be done in the box called "Edit summary" and possibly also here. That will help prevent possible "edit wars". --Crxssi (talk) 22:22, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Origin of Distribution[edit]

The official websites doesn't say almost anything. Is this distro based on RedHat? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.57.166.138 (talk) 05:53, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

Clean up sentence/section for clarity[edit]

This sentence should probably be rephrased or broken up to be more clear.

The next day, on September 18, 2010, some of these former employees, who were mostly responsible for the development and maintenance of the Mandriva Linux distribution, and several community members announced the creation of Mageia, with the support of many members of the community of developers, users and employees of Mandriva Linux. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 170.40.160.233 (talk) 15:14, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Distinguishing Features[edit]

Probably users have reasons for using Mageia rather than one of the numerous other distributions. A short paragraph at least, with title such as "Distinguishing Features", would be appropriate. Regards, PeterEasthope (talk) 13:02, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
