LXer: Linux CDs for free from

Published at LXer:

Ryan Cloke's vision is to do business in a "better way." He's the owner of, a Web site that sells low-cost Linux CDs, laptops, and custom workstations. This morning, to fulfill his vision, he began distributing free CDs of popular distributions like Fedora, Mandriva, Debian, and Knoppix. The response has been overwhelming. [...] So at midnight on July 13, opened for business. Demand for the free disks has been brisk, to say the least. Less than 24 hours into the venture, Cloke had more than 2,500 requests for free disks, with SUSE the most frequently asked-for CD set. "This is a huge amount," Cloke says. "A lot more than I anticipated." He says he's going to need financial help to meet the demand. "I currently only have enough funding to fill 400 requests." The project is funded partly by profits from The Linux Store, but Cloke is also relying on donations and sponsorships from the general public and community businesses. [Time to help, if you can! -- grouch]
