    Question How big is the mandriva free download?


    On the mandriva website the "mandriva linux free 2007 (4CD)" torrents are about 2.7Gig but when I go to download the same thing from a website like softpedia.com the download is 4.3Gig.
    Is it the same ISO file?
    Does the larger one have more features?
    Why is one bigger when they say they are supposed to be exactly the same thing?

    If you want maximum features, you should download Mandriva One :
    http://www.mandriva.com/en/download/mandrivaone

    Either the Gnome or the KDE edition. Not the free version, of which many features have been excluded, because of their non-free nature.
