Kubuntu Free CD’s



One of the things I’ve really admired about the Ubuntu project is that they will MAIL you REAL cds of their product for free. That can give a much more professional look for redistribution than a hand burned cd with handwritten green ink saying ubuntu linux 5.10…. Well, Ubuntu has done this for quite a while, NOW the “Shipit” service is available for Kubuntu. You’ll basically need a Launchpad account first. Also, Edubuntu now will ship free cds as well.

According to the FAQ… “All CDs currently contain version 6.06 LTS, development codename “Dapper Drake”. For every CD you order, we will send you one package that contains a single CD (live CD installer) in a cardboard wallet. This is true for all architectures.”


Now, Dapper Drake hasn’t officially been released yet. (In fact the Release Candidate was announced yesterday (and downloaded here..) Yes, the cds are free, no shipping, nothing…. free.. My biggest hope is that it’s used responsibly and people don’t make ridiculous requests (100 cds to cover a wall….) Anyway… given that Dapper drake hasn’t Officially been released I’m thinking they may be holding orders until it’s official.

(The RC looked nice from what I saw of the livecd… maybe more on that in another post.)
