i had a 384 disc binder, full of distros, bsd's, windows and mac's from when i started collecting them in early 2005, i filled that to capacity earlier this year ((febuary i think)) so i purged a good chunk of it, i prolly have 120 or so right now and it keeps growing

BTW Desktop BSD is really fast! I like it.

I have more iso's than I can count, but because I use CD-RWs I don't know how many have actually been used off a CD before

June 24th, 2008, 05:03 AM
too many to count

June 24th, 2008, 05:12 AM
Haven't counted in a while.

Fedora Core 2
Fedora Core 4
Suse 9.3
Gentoo (unsure which version)
Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop
Ubuntu 8.04 Server
Xandros (unsure which Version)
CentOS Server (In ISO format on my other laptop)

I think that's all of them.

I use to have 80+ before I decided to just sick to Ubuntu. Now I have a collection of every (Ku)(Edu)(U)buntu since I started, 5.10 and all my LFX disks (issue 81-present). I threw the other burnt disks out last month when I started packing to move. I do not have 8.04 yet, but I am sure there will be some at Ohio Linuxfest.

1 for debian etch network install
1 for ubuntu hardy heron

I use CD-RWs, so once I have finished with the Distro, I reuse the CD for something else (not necessarily another distro)

Therefore I only keep 2 CDs for the OSes I have installed and use on my machines.

The few distros that I have are on rewritable CD or DVD. If I am not sufficiently impressed by a given distro to keep it on a system, I just erase and burn a new .ISO

I know that it my R/W drives occasionally sound like a flushing toilet, I bought R/W drives for that exact reason.

A cd or 7.

( ubuntu 7.04, 7.10, 8.04 - Linux mint Cassandra - Super grub disk - gparted live cd - pclinuxos 2007)

Most distro's I test in virtualbox so I don't burn them.

I have around 20 distro iso's sitting right here.


Make that 8, I found an old puppy cd somewhere.

I see the OP has "Windows XPoop" xP

I don't have much.

Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.10 alpha 1
Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 7.10 PS3
Ubuntu 8.10 PS3
Yellow Dog 5 PS3
Yellow Dog 6 PS3

Around 50, But some of the disks are in 3's like slackware disc 1-3.

July 21st, 2008, 04:48 PM
90 (including all other UNIX and UNIX-like OSes, no Windows), my CD wallet is not indefinitely extendable ;)

July 21st, 2008, 06:15 PM

Ubuntu 6.10, 7.04, 8.04
some version of Ubuntu minimal install
Xubuntu 7.10, 8.04
Damn Small Linux
Knoppix DVD
Sabayon DVD

plan to try out arch and debian sometime too.

funny thing is i've never actually installed a non-ubuntu distro on my main computer. i've also never downloaded an rpm-based one, must check out mandriva sometime.

of course since i discovered virtualbox burning the isos is less necessary but my laptop is very modestly powered.
