Mageia 7 redefines the idea of conventional Linux. It is a stable working system nicely suited to each newcomers and seasoned Linux customers alike. The Mageia distro is a powerhouse Linux OS crammed with options and choices unmatched in different Linux variations. Mageia Linux is a fork of the now-defunct Mandriva Linux. It was developed by a crew of former workers of the France-based industrial software program firm that folded Mandriva. The first Mageia model was launched in September 2010.
