  4. [ubuntu] Ubuntu DVD Image jigdo template is too large to be useful

    Poll: Re: Will Ubuntu ever require more than one CD?

    I'm happy that they have a CD ISO. Also, I am happy that with the Windows bootloader option you can boot the LiveCD from a DVD (my laptop does not do that if I just burn the CD ISO to a DVD).

    Absolutely not. If I don't want to accept patches or money from George to my fork of a GPL'd program because I don't like the name George, then that's my prerogative. The important thing is that...
