    This sticky is for those who want a distro but don't have the bandwidth/time/patience/will to download it, and want to mooch off those who do. Make your requests thus:

    City: [goes here]
    Distro Needed: [goes here, and mention either x64 or x86]

    If you can fulfill a request, please reply to it via PM ONLY. This way, the thread remains clean and will only contain requests. Any posts to the tune of "Hey I have this distro, you want?" will be deleted and the member will spend one week as a Miserable User (experiencing mysterious 'errors' and downtimes).

    More importantly, DO NOT disclose personal details like your home address and/or phone numbers in this thread - use the PM system for that.

    It's only fair that you 'pay' the person who gave you the distro with the necessary blank CDs/DVDs (and a rep point for helping you out, even).

    Anyone stupid enough to try to selling a distro CD/DVD will be banned from this forum.

    In other news:
    Get Ubuntu CDs from http://shipit.ubuntu.com

    Get CDs/DVDs for other distros from http://free.thelinuxstore.ca (and donate to them if you can, too)

    No point in ordering, they still ask for donation. I ordered a month back and they still not have shipped the same.
