There was a copy of Slackware 9.1 on the cover DVD of Linux Format a few months ago here in the UK, but unfortunately for some reason I couldn't get it to work properly and had to burn copies to CD-ROM to get it installed.I don't know where you're based but going here:
For me it's $1 for a DVD vs 80 cents for 2 CDs. I know you can get CD-Rs for 20 cents, but I don't buy those in bulk as I rarely use them. I still think it's even worth 60 cents more for the convenience of 1 DVD.
Edit: Not to mention you could probably add even more software to the DVD.
