Mandriva Linux One 2009.0 (KDE)

(Other stories by Jim Lynch)

"Mandriva Linux Free is the version without any proprietary software or drivers. It’s for those who are truly committed to “free” software at its most…well…free. Mandriva Linux One is a free download that also contains some proprietary drivers and software. The Mandriva Powerpack is a version that you must pay for and it includes all of the stuff on the free versions as well as additional value-added software. You can get the Powerpack via a one time payment or a subscription.

"You can also buy Mandriva in a portable, flash version too. I downloaded Mandriva Linux One 2009 for this review. I’ve never been an ideologue as far as “free” software goes and the Powerpack is far more than I’d need if I were going to use Mandriva as my main desktop operating system."
