Gael Duval is the creator of Mandrake Linux, which later became Mandriva and was the base for many modern spin-offs, including ROSA, OpenMandriva and Mageia. Duval is also the creator of /e/, a smart phone operating system that strips out Google applications and services from Android. Duval gave an interview to FOSS Force in which he discusses Mandrake Linux and his current project to make smart phones more pleasant and more secure to use. "At this point it appears as if the phone is ready for it’s prime time launch. According to the project’s website, the OS can now be installed on over 80 different devices. By default, the phone now comes with at least 17 apps preinstalled by default — with none of them being Google apps that are normally pre-installed in Android. Included in the mix: a calendar and task manager that can be configured to function together, a maps app that’s intended as a replacement for Google Maps, an email client forked from K-9 Mail, and an app for recording screen and voice."
