| Free Linux CDs
- Have a local linux distribution center ( store/office ) to pick up FREE cdroms
- Personally, i do NOT like to order thru mail order for anything
and it'd take too long to arrive and too much headaches about "i didn't order that"
- If i need a new distro, or latest cdrom, i usually need it NOW/today
and it'd take forever to download 4 - 10 CDs or 4GB DVDs
- Downloading/Uploading 650MB CDs or 4GB DVDs are not trivial, when lots of people want it
and "Redhat Patches" are about 1.8GB each ..
- Currently, there is no physical store to get "the desired" cdroms
not even slackware, fedora, debian, knoppix, etc, etc
- Distribute Free Linux CDs
- cdrw glass media is $0.10 each or sometimes FREE with rebate
- give away free CDs at linux user meetings
- have CDs available at linux installfest meetings and trade shows
- Sponsors/Volunteers get to make their custom cdrom labels
- Users are encouraged to pass along the cdrom or donate $$ to EFF.org or ??
- CDRW Burner Server ( $430 or less or more )
- You'd get a system with say 250GB of disk space
- $ 50 mid-tower case for multiple cdrw drives ??
- $ 100 Mini-ITX motherboard
- $ 80 256GB memory
- $ 150 250GB ide disk
- $ 50 cdrw drive
- You'd use our mirroring scripts to automatically maintain your depository
