    Special Request

    I have an unusual request, I am working as a volunteer in Malawi, Africa, and downloads here are too slow to get a whole disk. It would take all month and cost a fortune. We are currently getting some companies in South Africa to donate some old computers for use in training people in Malawi (using Ubuntu of course) and I would really like to get hold of a copy of Ubuntu 6.10. Is there anyone out there that could post us a cd? If so, the address is:

    David Clark

    Blantyre
    Malawi

    Thank you so much for considering this.

    If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

    It's 6.06, which I have a copy of. I was hoping for a copy of Edgy, which seems to be very good, with newer features. Feisty is coming soon too...

    I never knew that; I presumed they would send you any supported version. Linux for everyone?
