We are sorry to announce that the Mageia 1 operating system will reach end-of-life (EOL) in approximately two weeks, on Saturday, December 1, 2012.

Announced last year, on June 1, 2011, Mageia 1 was the first Mageia release and it was supported for 18 months.

Starting with December 1, the Mageia foundation will stop "feeding" its first born operating system with security/critical fixes and software updates!

"According to our support policy every release is supported for 18 months which means Mageia 1 will reach end of life on the December 1st, 2012." was stated in the official blog announcement.

Therefore, all Mageia 1 users are urged to update their systems to the current stable release, Mageia 2, which can be downloaded right now from Softpedia or from its official website.
