    Its US only at present. Canonical are working on international availability so hopefully a UK version will be available soon.
    I find it strange that it doesn't seem to be advertised on the main ubuntu and kubuntu sites as it seems a great way to fund development and advertise to potential new users at the same time, particularly if enough ubuntu/kubuntu users order it that it makes amazon's top 10 selling list.

    Hey, anybody else wondering what happened to the "ubuntu will always be available free of charge" bit? Not that I'm complaining, Its a good idea to get at least some return for the investment. But just seems a bit contradictory.

    Why is it contradictory? It still is available free of charge. Just go to the download page and download it.

    What you're paying for with the DVD is the convenience (especially if you don't have hi-speed internet and a DVD burner) of having Ubuntu prepackaged and shipped quickly to you.

    The operating system itself is still free.

    Actually it is being advertised here:

    Want fast delivery of Ubuntu DVDs?

    If you live in the US, you can order online now!

    Ubuntu 6.06 LTS for PCs
    Ubuntu 6.06 LTS for 64-bit PCs
    Ubuntu 6.06 LTS for Macs
    Has anybody here actually ordered the DVD yet?

    I was going to but then I decided I could just burn a DVD but then I looked and don't see a place to burn the DVD?

    I live in Australia. It's a western country that speaks english & happens to be one of USA's few allies in the Iraq war...ahem

    I tried to order the dvd's from your Amazon and get message 'not available in your region' or some such drivel.

    For God's sakes I want to buy it to support the company!

    Ok, where do I d/l the image? *sigh*
