Yea please don't abuse the ordering people. Those who are getting 100 and have a reason for that many then go for it, but if you're getting 100 just to show your friends or "backup" purposes then please don't. I'd hate to see this get shut down because people are ordering huge amounts to use as coasters.

Yah, mine arrived 3 days ago.

I'm actually very imrpessed. I was expecting recorded cds in plastic sleeves for the price (free). Here they made the effort to make it look nice. Believe it or not card is expensive (way more so than cds as I discovered when I had to produce a few hundred cds with packaging), printing on the card is expensive and printing onto the cds adds to the cost as well.

I'd be impressed if they kept the price under 60p to produce and wouldnt be suprised if it cost over ?1 (each cd costs 17p to buy, burn and print apparently, but packaging is the real expensive)

Oh, and there's also P&P :pinch::

I really can't believe some people have the nerve to complain about it taking a long time to arrive. For goodness sake people! They're free! You don't have a right to complain!

I ordered 10 CDs, the default amount. I only need one but I figured they probably save more on postage if it's in bulk. Plus I'll just give the spares to some friends or something.

It probably costs alot less than that per-CD because it would be alot cheaper to do it in bulk. They probably get a thousand made at a time.

Yes, we do have the right to complain.

We, the normal people who requested the CDs to use and distribute to people that would use/need them and Canonical Ltd. are getting owned due to people that abuse the system.

I just got mine yesterday, but I'm concerned about the Live CD's, they have this strange discoloration around the middle, kinda like the one a few pages ago...

The package it came in was very, abused looking for some reason. Could this be a problem?

Does Ubuntu do a media self-check when you boot it for installation? If so, that will help deterine if the media is good. You can also run a mdsum on the CD and check it to what it should be (or google the result to verify, like this: http://www.google.com/search?q=f6b3f164c99...858a4d2c12d0840

I wouldn't let color differences bother me, though.

Took a long time for me, but it was worth it.

My dvd burner (BenQ 1640) seems to have trouble reading the AMD64 discs though, I have to do a network install instead :(
