Got a package this morning from Ubuntu 5.04. All 12 CD installers are in it — 10 for Intel x86, 1 for PowerPC and 1 for AMD64/EM64T. I requested these many months ago and thought they wouldn’t send me my free copy. T’was a surprise I got them now.
Ubuntu is an operating system consisting entirely of free and open source software. They release a new version every six months so you’re fairly updated.
They’re shipping the CDs free of charge and encourage people to re-distribute the software to as many people as possible. Just go to their site at ShipIt.Ubuntu.com and request for your copy. They will then send it to you by mail from The Netherlands (that’s what my package says). They’ll even send them by the hundreds if you are to distribute them in a conference or seminar of sorts.
Anyway, I will bring several copies to our PTB Meetup this Saturday, so leave a comment if you want a copy.
