    I was also waiting for Digit archive, now no going through each and every dvd, for a specific game or DVD.
    Hope this time the search criteria would be much better then the previous one.

    Is it still in its beta form?

    I do. Most of them are Black & White but that does not mean they are not good. Watch them with patient & you will really discover some diamonds of films from them.

    I had seen before Street Fighter. Thanks for the other two movies. Keep on
    providing good old movies :p

    digit seems to be more interested in giving the alphas and betas of distros and miss the major versions.

    I thought they would atleast give fedora 11 DVD but.......

    The 2 DVD space every month is not properly utilized at all. All crap software except last month's web development kit.

    EVen they never bundled windows live essentials which is a must have.

    Learn from chip they attract the users even with their single DVD offering.

    its surprising as well as shocking that to learn that fast-track topics are being repeated.....
    Also that team-digit has been avoiding compalints here at forums,which begs the questions "What is the purpose of this post??????"

    My comments in june issue feedback were also not answered............
