    Post Amazon selling Ubuntu DVDs

    <p>Jane Silber wrote in to let us know that Amazon is now selling Ubuntu and Kubuntu DVDs for US$9.99. While <a href="http://shipit.ubuntu.com">ShipIt</a> will send you CDs for free, the DVD is nice for those who are bandwidth starved or need overnight delivery.</p>

    Can we assume the profits go to Canonical? If so, I may just get one.

    system requirements for kubuntu are wrong, someone should fix that.

    Yes, here is the description in Amazon

    Kubuntu 6.06 LTS DVD (PC Edition) (Jewel Case)
    by Canonical Ltd (Consignment)
    I had no idea what Consignment means, but there we go

    Cheers!

    I've read the description, and I don't see how that tells me the profits are going to Canonical. I don't see why the profits wouldn't go to Canonical, but can someone actually quote me the part of the Amazon description that answers my question? Maybe I'm just blind. I don't see it.

    Canoical is making/selling the discs, so the profits can only go to them.

    Re: Amazon selling Ubuntu DVDs

    Well, since Jane Silber is announcing it, I would expect Canonical to be receiving the profits
