Like the author said below, Mandrake 9.2 ISO images were provided in advance to Mandrake Linux Club Members and all 9.2 contributors (developers, translators...), but they will be released publicly before the end of October, when Mandrake 9.2 products will be available in retail.
As for Bittorrent, it was a first large scale experiment and there were a few glitches, but all of them have been fixed, and solutions were reported through a FAQ.
Simultaneously, the entire Mandrake 9.2 FTP tree, including full sources and contribs, was released publicly.
Mandrake Linux has been the first Linux distribution to release ISO images, and was soon followed by other distributions. We will continue to do it, so no need to worry for free beer! At the same time, all users can easily understand that increasing the number of Mandrake Club Subscribers and Mandrake products purchasers generates more revenues, and in the end this benefits to all (better and more featured product).
