In November 2001, Mandriva introduced Mandriva Club -- a new concept in offering special services and benefits to Club Members.

Over the years, Mandriva has developed a wide selection of great benefits and services for Club Members, including:

Free Downloads

  1. Early and privileged access is provided, before public release, to ISO images of the latest Mandriva Linux, using the fast BitTorrent technology.

  2. All members (Standard and above) have full access to commercial applications which are normally only available in retail packs. Over 130 high-quality packages built & tested for Mandriva Linux can be installed with a single mouse click. Applications include easy-to-use web browser plugins, Java RPMs (JRE and JDK), powerful commercial applications and demo versions, software drivers, updated ATI and NVidia drivers, and lots more.

  3. Standard Members may download the first four CDs of the Powerpack edition of each Mandriva Linux release, for both i586 and x86-64 architectures, via Bittorrent or direct FTP / HTTP access. This includes
    the most important proprietary drivers, such as the ATI and NVIDIA graphics card drivers.

  4. Silver Members may download the Powerpack and Discovery editions of each Mandriva Linux release (along with numerous proprietary drivers and plugins), for both i586 and x86-64 architectures, in CD and DVD editions, via Bittorrent or direct FTP / HTTP access.

  5. Gold and Platinum members have the same access as Silver members, plus the Powerpack+ edition and the MNF (Multi Network Firewall) distribution.

  6. A huge database of all the software packages currently available for the Mandriva Linux distributions is accessible. Thousands of RPM packages -- over 100GBs of software (and still growing) -- are now available for all versions of Mandriva Linux

Knowledge Access

  1. Multilingual discussion forums and multilingual articles.

  2. Full access to Mandriva's e-learning platform which provides comprehensive courses about Linux and Open Source software, plus quizzes to test your knowledge.

  3. Early access to Mandriva Linux manuals and technical documentation through a unique online system that collects users' & developers' comments & suggestions to ensure the best possible level of expertise.

  4. Full access to the Mandriva Club Knowledge Base. Every Member may contribute.

Other Benefits

  1. Special discounts for Mandriva Store products and services are available.

  2. Special discounts on third-party products and services are offered. Past promotions have included TransGaming Kohan games, Hancom Office, Yopy, Win4Lin, and many others.

  3. Club Members can request and vote for new software packages with the volunteer-run RPM voting system. Hundreds of great applications are available for the i586 and x86-64 editions of Mandriva Linux.

  4. Access to a range of fun and useful web services, including a blogging system and a set of e-cards for mailing to friends and family.

This impressive array of benefits and services makes the Club a great value for all Mandriva Linux users.

How are Membership fees used?

  • Membership fees are primarily used to directly fund the development of the Mandriva Linux distribution and related services. Membership fees also pay the salaries of employees who often contribute directly or indirectly to "external" Free Software projects such as the Linux kernel, KDE, GNOME, Prelude, and others.

  • Fees are also used for the development of community websites such as Mandriva, Mandriva Club and the development of Internet services specifically for the benefit of Club Members

And don't forget: In addition to the many benefits of Club membership, you will be helping to ensure the continued development of the Mandriva Linux distribution. The more successful the Club becomes, the better that Mandriva can serve YOU the user.
