Mandriva or mandrake full distro download

Where do you download latest MANDRAKE or MANDRIVA full download DISTRO that is clean. ?

I need to install MANDRAKE for a FRIEND he say's he is a old user of MANDRAKE and he would like to go back to it. I have no idea why he needs MANDRAKE since there is UBUNTU 12.04 LTS . He says he don't like it. I have to install what the customer likes. So if anyone can give me clean site with full distro of latest MANDRAKE. ISO distro that is full version and clean. I would appreciate it a lots. So i can get him out from Windows 7 that is killing him currently. Please help if you can so i can get him to be linux again.

I am old school red hat, been since 7.3, love Debian BSD also. I am old timer . I just need the full ISO. So i can shut of my friend from whining.. lol

The Mandriva company doesn't seem to be offering anything up to date at present as far as Linux goes. Their Linux has moved to a community model, but there's not much of a community any more, and frankly, I'd look at Mageia instead if you really want a Mandrake feel, it looks to be better supported at this point.

Do you have a link, where to get that. I think the latest Mandrake or Mandriva was 10.1 after that is has become enterprise modell like '' red-hat '' .

I will check the MAGEIA.

Where can i get good ISO that is clean . ?

Not surprisingly, Mageia ISOs can be downloaded from the Mageia website.
