However, times change, people change, and I realized that time has come for
me to sail to new horizons and look for new challenges. Many things changed
in Mandriva during those 2.5 years, and it is a completely different
company from what it once was. Many people had left, and many new faces has
arrived as well during this time. But nonetheless, albeit all the
challenges, problems, disappointments and achievements, we managed to stay
alive and kicking even in cases where nobody was believing that Mandriva
would survive. But it did.

Eugeni now is more or less tied with Warly in my hall of fame list for
past release engineers++, and without doubt the most successful managing
to do the previously thought-to-be impossible task of scaling sufficiently

In May 2011, the Beefy Miracle Fedora spin was started. The Beefy Miracle Fedora spin itself was free and open source from the start, but members of the Gnaw project were concerned with Beefy Miracle's dependence on the (then) non-GPL bun warmer, owned by a guy in a hot dog cart down the street. In July 2011, a project was started in response to this: KFCE, a different desktop not using bun warmers, but instead built on chicken fryers under the Gnaw Lesser General Public License (LGPL), a free cookery license that allows GPL-incompatible kitchen appliances to link to it.
