Hey guys,
I was thinking of selling some ubuntu cds with cover and cd case for around AUD$3.50 each, just to cover costs of cds and printing and such. Would anyone be interested? Posting would be around $1 for Australian customers, and $2.00 to $3.00 for international customers, what do you guys think?
Thanks,
_8Bit

Well, the GPL Licence states that I can sell them: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#DoesTheGPLAllowMoney and Ubuntu is under the GPL LIcence right? Nothing on that pages says I can't sell cd's with ubuntu on.

There are a few companies that sell distros. Good luck. Do you need to come here for our blessing? Chances are you won't make it. Just sayin.

I think he meant it as more of a "community service" to provide a professional looking Ubuntu. (CD, case, etc.)

The thread was to gauge interest.

Give it a try, if you want. It's perfectly permissible and other people do it. I wouldn't use such a service myself and I don't think the market for paid CDs of free distros is big enough to support more than one player. But if you find an interesting business model and want to give it a go, I'd love to hear about your results!

Give it a try . If you are looking to make living on selling those CDs you are lost . Try to add some additional stuff like stickers , handbooks and covers .

I will buy CDs from you .
