    I don't know if this has been posted or not, but I recently found a place that might be shipping free Linux disks: http://free.thelinuxstore.ca

    It's only the major distributions at this point though. I just ordered Fedora Core 5, so I don't know how fast they ship and things like that, but they're taking a page from Ubuntu's book, and I thought it would be nice to share.

    One disk per two weeks.

    This should make life a little easier for those not on broadband.

    Did you receive what you ordered? And other comments on the service?

    sorry there dog, still waiting. 4-6 weeks. Might have jumped the gun on my part.

    However, my friend has received his copy, so I don't know if it's a fluke, or if it's forreal. I will comment again in a few weeks.

    I'm hesitant as of right now because checking my status on the dvd I ordered brings up a paypal account.

    I've found this on a newsite as well... so maybe it is indeed reputable?

    So what`s the Distro of choice? Very much a Linux noobie here.

    They're all fairly similar ... any of the top distros would be fine ... choose the desktop you prefer and go from there (Gnome, KDE, Xfce ... etc). ;)

    You won't go wrong with any of the popular distros Fedora, SuSE, Ubuntu, Mandriva, Mepis ... etc. etc. :)

    Appreciate it. Have the Ubuntu install & live CD. Looking to a multi-boot system in the future. yea, Windows will be one of them, now for the second choice. Decisions....decisions....decisions....:rolleyes:

    Edit What can I say, always liked the lil` penguin. So I went with Knoppix.

    Well, I've ordered also but they want you to sponsor them to ship your CDs or to wait for somebody to sponsor you. :D And I'm wondering....will somebody sponsor me? :D :D
