Press Release -- Does your company use Mandrake Linux in its day-to-day operations? Would you like to help accelerate the development of the Mandrake Linux distribution while also benefitting from exclusive privileges? Then the Corporate Club is just for you!

The Corporate Club was created in the same spirit as the Mandrake Linux Users Club, but tailored specifically for businesses and corporations (please read the Mandrake Linux User Club page (and FAQ) to learn more about the Users Club).

The most important benefit of Club membership is that your membership fee is used to boost the development of the Mandrake Linux distribution; Your company's financial support also ensures that MandakeSoft will not have to redirect a greater amount of its resources to money-generating areas (such as commercial products and services) to the detriment of Open Source activities (primarily the Mandrake Linux distribution & documentation which are freely available under the GPL license).

The more successful the Club becomes, the better that MandrakeSoft can serve YOU the corporate user. Membership in the Corporate Club also provides companies with a number of exclusive privileges:

  • Same base privileges as the Mandrake Linux User Club, plus:
  • Direct download access to Mandrake Linux servers (for membership levels of $10K and up)
  • Availability of commercial RPMs
  • Special offers on third party products and services
  • Company name displayed during the Mandrake Linux installation and on mandrakelinux.com special page
  • Additional privileges to be determined by the request of members

Several corporate membership levels are available to choose from:

  • Standard ($2,500)
  • Silver ($10,000)
  • Gold ($25,000)
  • Platinum ($50,000)
  • Priviledged Partner ($100,000)

All memberships are valid for one year.

The success of Free Software depends on everyone's involvement. The best way for your company to boost Mandrake Linux and to support open standard is by joining the Mandrake Corporate Club today. We look forward to hearing from you.
