Quoting from here:
Yes, now it's true. You can ship distros like SUSE Linux, Debian, Fedora Core, Gentoo, Knoppix and others free like on shipit.ubuntu.com!This project was started after the newly defined mission of TheLinuxStore.ca was created. Part of the mission is "To help spread Linux and open source software around the world". This project is one way we are going to fulfill this mission. There are many places around the world that are still on dialup or have restictive download limits which makes downloading Linux time comsuming or expensive. We hope this project will help these people and many others obtain Linux.
Isn't open source just GREAT?!
