Just a quick word from my bunker. I am quite late on this, but Xubuntu CD’s are finally available to order for free! (Well, almost free, as you’ll have to pay for the shipping.) Order yours from On-Disk.com’s Quick Ship service.
Remember that this service is not run by the Xubuntu developers neither or Canonical. It is an independent service provided by a fellow open source community member. Thank you On-Disk.com!
By the way, Karmic artwork is coming together!
