You can order free Ubuntu CDs http://shipit.ubuntulinux.org/ [Broken]

You should probably note that this offer is only for members of registered Linux User Groups.

Did Ubuntu recently change their policy? I got about 15 cds from them a while back and I am not a part of a LUG, or any other groups. I don't even remember Ubuntu asking for anything other than my address and an email account.
 
Yeah, and I got my Debian Net install cd in about 5 minutes from the web. For Free I might add.

All right, I'll believe you guys, but the site said it was only giving away to members of LUGs. Why would they give 10 or 15 copies to individual users? Are you giving them to your friends or something?

I received 10 also. Ubuntu is really nice (compared to some other "flavors" I have tried).

Yes I do. Often I get friends peeking over my shoulder and they see this odd looking user interface on my laptop. So when they ask, I usually give them a set of CDs so they can play with.

Ubuntu recommends that you take more than one. They say that cds are so cheap that you might as well order more, as the real cost is shipping.
 
I thought this thread is about diff. versions of linux. You can easily go to www. linuxiso.org and download diff. flavors to try out. If you're a first time linux user I recommend knoppix as it boots from the cd and you won't need to install it.
 
My friend had got 8 copies (early July IIRC) of Ubuntu and gave one to me. Its been on for quite some time it seems.

I don't know if anyone cares, but v. 5.10 is available at www.linuxiso.org[/URL] now. The CD will be released early next month, according the Ubuntu site anyway.
