Mandriva to Offer One Click Software Subscription Service

Filed under
MDV

Mandriva is introducing Mandriva One, a combined live and install CD based on Mandriva Linux 2006. In a few weeks, Mandriva will open the first version of Mandriva Kiosk, a one-click Web-based software installation service, to Club members.

Mandriva Kiosk is a real revolution in the experience offered to Mandriva Linux users, allowing subscribers to explore new software for their systems on a personalized web page based on Mandriva choices and recommendations and the packages most popular with other users. Selected applications can be downloaded and installed with just one click. The software is available in the form of "bundles" which are coherent groups of applications. The easiness of downloading and installing a bundle is one of the major attractions of Kiosk. A first version of Mandriva Kiosk available to Mandriva Club members only will provide four bundles (KDE 3.5, GNOME 2.12, Firefox and Thunderbird 1.5 and OpenOffice.org 2.0.2). Mandriva Kiosk will join the other advantages offered to Mandriva Club members, and will also be accessible by annual subscription to non-Club members.

Full PR.
