Free Ubuntu CD Shipments To End [networkworld.com]
All good things must come to an end, including free Ubuntu CDs via Canonical's ShipIt program. Though a major factor in Ubuntu's success, Canonical is cutting costs and closing the doors on the free CD program it has sponsored since 2005.

Since Ubuntu's early days, Canonical has provided free CDs to anyone who signed up via its ShipIt program. Though it may be difficult to remember, there was a time when Ubuntu was the new kid on the block. The ShipIt program helped Ubuntu get a leg up on other Linux distros and make inroads with users who'd never tried Linux before by putting free Linux CDs in the hands of millions of users.
