    Hello.

    I wanted to know whether the people at Ubuntu are really serious in shipping free CDs across the globe?

    If yes, is it safe for me to place a free order?

    thats the way.... @tech_your_future u r one of the most sensible guy in this forum . see the free_CD thread ..the number of hits . everybody think himself very BIG when lots of CDs come to their home only because it is free .

    I guess those who ordered 10s of ubuntu CDS only >5% of them loaded and using Ubuntu .I am writing to ubuntu about this fact .

    I ordered just one cd set and they sent me a five cd set. each set has two cds one live and one installer.If source codes are required then i guess you have to download it from their server.
