Mandriva server updates?


I'm thinking about trying Mandriva server on my small consulting server. Are the updates free or does it work something like Red Hat Enterprise where you buy a subscription? I'm asking here because the Mandriva site was a little unclear on this (well, at least, the information that I found was).

It depends on what you want. You can run most server applications on the Mandriva FREE version. Packages are provided in the repo's for most FOSS server applications. There's a server kernel if you need it. Updates are provided (free of charge) according to Mandriva's product lifetime policy:

Corporate products like Mandriva Enterprise Server (MES5) are paid-for products:
