I weas wondering where I can get Ubuntu Cd's. I'm using 8.04 which I installed using a Cd which came with a book. I'm wondering where to get CD's like that but for later versions.
I prefer to have a Cd rather than getting an ISO and burning my own. Any suggestions?

Your nearest shop that sells magazines. Many computer magazines come with a CD or DVD.

You probably want Ubuntu 10.04 LTS first, before trying the very latest ..


BTW: You could easily create a CD using Windows, by following info on Ubuntu download page.

Thanks for all the replies. Used the Ubuntu site to download .iso and made cd. I'm using my 10.04 LTS right this minute - How cool is that?
And thanks for the manual link - a handbook is always nice to have.
And yes, the Ubuntu 8.04 I've been using came with a book I bought years ago, but I'll probably try the Lubuntu.
Thanks again, you all are very nice to respond to people in need. :D

You are welcome.

By the way, in stead of buring CD's you can install the ISO to a USB stick and boot from that, if your computer is new-ish.
