(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
so, regarding politics

So my take is that Mandriva was taken as a change coin to kill off ALT Linux as a local software vendor incompatible with politics carried out by Big Blue: "just pay up, consume what we give you and don't touch anything" (a quote from Sosnovtsev again).
It's not entirely surprising that it's hard for any honest man to deal with folks plunging into activities like killing off someone else just to be killed off either.
And we at ALT Linux Team are still working on providing reasonably independent IT research and development in operating environments for Russia. My best wishes to colleagues at Mageia project and my hope's that goodwill is what finally prevails.

Continuing to trolling and slandering Mandriva for businiss in Russia which it's not even involved with or having any influence on is simply highly inaccurate and not very nice at all..
Please give it a rest.
