Is Mandriva Linux still for free?

Recommended Posts

Guest zeframcochrane

Hello everyone,

 

I was looking on the Mandriva website and I could not find anywhere where I can download the ISO for Mandriva for free. Does that mean that now whoever want's to install Mandriva will have to first join the club (basically pay) and then get access to Mandriva?

 

Please confirm.

Welcome to the board.

Yes, its still free. Go here: http://www1.mandrivalinux.com/en/ftp.php3 and in the bottom right hand section called "Download from public FTP mirrors" you will see a link to download the 2005 latest version. That link takes you to another site where you can select your favourite or nearest mirror site.

Mandriva has gone on record stating they will continue to provide a complete "Free as in speech" version for public download.

Thanks for the responses everyone!

 

The greatest thing about Linux is that it is free and that other people can come in and modify the system from the ground up.

 

And I was happy to hear from all of you that Mandriva Linux will be free. I have installed Mandrake 10.0 and instantly fallen in love with it. I was using SUSE Linux 7.0 before I installed Mandrake but I believe from now on it shall be Mandrake Linux for me.

 

I love Linux :cheesy:

 

Once again, thanks everyone!

And i think it will remain free, untill some one like novel or :evilmod: microsoft :evilmod: does not acquire's it and starts making hugh $$$$$ out of it. hehe. :thumbs:

 

Though there are vendors like me who provide mandrake linux cds in countries like india,pakistan,asian subcontinents etc.
