In November 2001, Mandriva introduced Mandriva Club - a new concept in offering special services and benefits to users.
Over the years, Mandriva has developed a wide selection of great benefits and services for Club Members, including:
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, powerful commercial applications and demo versions, and lots more.
Standard and above members may download the Powerpack edition of each Mandriva Linux release, for both i586 and x86-64 architectures, via Bittorrent or direct FTP / HTTP access. This includes many proprietary drivers and applications, such as ATI and NVIDIA graphics card drivers.
Gold and Platinum members have the same access as Silver members, plus the Powerpack+ edition and the MNF (Multi Network Firewall) distribution.
Full access to Mandriva's e-learning platform which provides comprehensive courses about Linux and open source software, plus quizzes to test your knowledge.
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.
Special discounts for Mandriva Store products and services are available.
Special discounts on third-party products and services are offered. Past promotions have included TransGaming Kohan games, Hancom Office, Yopy, Win4Lin, and many others.
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.
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.
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.Choose the monthly payment or annual payment
