    Hi

    Canonical has stopped shipping the Ubuntu discs to everyone. In fact they have limited the shipping of the same.

    ^but what abt the limited plan users, (like me) they cant download. So shipping was the best alternative.

    Hey Varad, these days you get DVD Distros free with mags, not just CD distros. Also, you can always request distros on Indian forums, some FOSS fan or the other will send them to you, you only bear the shipping cost.

    The purchase bit is like 1 pound per CD of ubuntu. If ordering 200CD's its for 135 pounds and shipping is free.

    But the wait for the distro to get on the magazine is too long...
