“A company pulling their support out of an open source project does not mean it has to die.”
So begins a new thread of history for the Lineage OS Android Distribution, the all-new forking of CyanogenMod we’ve all expected. The change —announced on the community’s blog — was warranted after Cyanogen Inc., the commercial effort attempting to spread the software, decided to shift focus and co-founder Steve Kondik pulled out of the venture to work on Lineage.
At the same time, Cyanogen Inc. has decided to shut down services [...]
Community-based CyanogenMod's machinations within commercial entity Cyanogen have meant a file rescue effort and a new name for the former.

Kirt McMaster as CEO ended up being a bad choice. Workplace morale suffered. And a new directive quickly took over and transformed Cyanogen. So says Kondik.

Still a little confused as to the differences between Cyanogen and CyanogenMod? Gear up for more confusion, as Cyanogen Inc. launches MOD.
Cyanogen has been gettin’ busy lately after a somewhat eventful 2015. While it was on and then off with OnePlus, it has picked up some carriage agreements with a few manufacturers. Just this week, the software platform made it onto a major carrier in Spain with the introduction of the BQ Aquaris X5.
And the company backing a derivative of one of the most popular Android forks is just about ready to kick off 2016 with a bang. The Cyanogenmod community currently has a strong presence at the Big Android BBQ in Amsterdam right now and it has outlined a path towards its spread [...]
Consider it a skin. Consider it a better Android. Consider it an offshoot of an offshoot. Any way you look at it, Cyanogen has had its fair share of ups and downs as an independent entity (with some big arms to help it out), but those moves have been outside of the popular circuit — the carriers.
