If it's not intended for general consumption, why on earth is it
what we give away at events?
Because it hard to guess in advance what people want: GNOME, KDE, Xfce,
LXDE, i386, x86_64. You always run out of something and we ended up
shipping media back and forth. With the multi-images, live has become so
much easier for the Ambassadors - not to mention that we cut costs by
over 50% (or by 400% if you consider one DVD 8 CDs).
Shouldn't what we give to people be something that is intended
Sure, but what defines "intended for general consumption"?
