mandrake, like most (maybe all?) linux distros can be downloaded free of charge.

however, mandrake encourages you to join their club if you like their distro, thus paying in form of "donations", but it is not mandatory.

you can download Mdk 10 official already from suprnova.org using a Bittorrent client. most of the things offered on suprnova are illegal though, so be careful. hit the search button on the top of the site and search for "mandrake" to see the mandrake packages that they have.

or you can wait until mandrake releases the official version to the public... right now it's only available for their club members.

i doubt, if they'll be releasing that mdk 10 here in the Phils. i only saw 2 distro being sold out here. rh 8 and mdk 8 or later... so i'd rather have my bf download me some copy of it, but he told there is a fee, like $5 or something, not pretty sure.

Mandrake is free to download. The 10 Official ISOs will be available soon.

They would *like* you to contribute (minimum $5.50 per month, in year-long subscription), but they do not *require* you to do so.
