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

  • Fees are also used for the development of community websites such as Mandriva Linux.com, Mandriva Club.com and the development
    of Internet services specifically for the benefit of Club Members

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.
