Yeah man- you actually get 20 CD's - 10 live and 10 install! I still can't believe it. The postage was $5.75 from NY and it didn't cost me a cent. Made my day!!! Not to mention that it's such a darn good OS........

Thats a very good service. Enough cd's to share and hopefully convert a few people to Linux. I may just order some myself to redistribute.

it would be a really good idea to send the lefts overs to the free linux cd project so they can get some pumped out too and have more distro's to send out

I only got 1 of the Live and 1 of the Install.

I guess I ordered mine when they had a single CD option??

They always did, but the default is 10.

My Ubuntu CD's have yet to come in, but I am confident that they will come. I am up here in Canada, and I have heard, and seen, some people getting the free copies. At the Ubuntu site I order twenty CD's and it would appear that about half of them are already given away. They better come. It will not take long and all but one will be given away. People are really taking to my chat regarding using linux instead of M$, Receiving a nice packaged CD for free makes people happy.

Way to go Ubuntu.
