Guys and gals, I have found out this new feature on Ubuntu website! It is something called Launchpad [ I am not sure]! You can sign up there and request your own free cd of the latest version of Ubuntu from them. It is usually delivered within 4-6 weeks!

yeah, after my laptop, was ruined by a virus, I installed ubantu; it was lousy! I couldn't get on the internet or anything! I got my hands on a used desktop pc with windows installed and now my internet surfing is ok. I'll never use ubantu again!

My laptop got hit by a virus that killed Windows XP, so I also got Ubuntu installed. It's been working fine for me on the internet, which is mostly all I use it for anyway. the main thing I don't like is that I can't print coupons now, because the coupon printer is not compatible with Linux.

yea ive ordered many ubuntu desktop and server discs from launchpad too. they generally arrive within a weeks time and include 3 stickers as well. the packaging is nicely done too.

yea its true you can get a free ubuntu server or desktop edition disc from www.shipit.ubuntu.com i was also one of their loyal free customers but youll see when you order too much, they wont ship their products to you anymore and will ask you to download it yourself from their web page

They actually have had this for a long time. I remember ordering a box full of those CD's so that I could give them to my friends. Its really nice that their doing that, mainly because I have no idea if I would be actually willing to pay for a official CD when we also have the option of downloading it for free from their website. One thing I do like about that is that they also include sticks of those OS's. Thats kinda cool.
