2006 Price

Is Mandriva 2006 a free download or is it still only available to paying club members and sponsors?

Mandrake/Mandriva always provides a free download, you just have to wait a couple of weeks after they release it to the club for it to be available. I think they plan to release the free download in late october.

After you've got the free download going to will get you all the software thats in the Powerpack+ (and more like PLF and Contrib) edition, except for the special driver RPMs and closed source applications like Adobe Reader.

Mandriva says they'll release the tree tomorrow (source code tree I assume), and their last date for public ISOs was Nov 4th. You can buy 2006 either at linux central or distrowatch now though, if you want, for like $6 to $16.
