Shipping Ubuntu Feisty Fawn… And only Ubuntu Feisty Fawn.

You can now request your CD’s of Ubuntu 7.07 7.04 (Feisty Fawn), to be delivered free of charge, via ShipIt.

With the previous version of Ubuntu, Edgy Eft, you could only request CD’s of Dapper Drake, an earlier release of Ubuntu that came with Long Term Support.

When, a few days ago, the ShipIt website announced they were preparing to ship Ubuntu Feisty, I had already half expected this: you cannot request free CD’s of Xubuntu.

Too bad, but if you have a slow internet connection, apparently you can’t have your share of fun with Feisty.

Oh, and if you prefer the “Long Term Support” version of Ubuntu, you’re out of luck, because apparently, it no longer is available for shipping.

Ah well, fingers crossed for Feisty+1… (the Gutsy Gibbon)

    This is interesting:

    The Glossy Gnu will nonetheless play a role in this next release,
    because Ubuntu 7.10 will feature a new flavour – as yet unnamed – which
    takes an ultra-orthodox view of licensing: no firmware, drivers,
    imagery, sounds, applications, or other content which do not include
    full source materials and come with full rights of modification,
    remixing and redistribution.

    Now we can see how far the free and open source development is …
    I’ll surely try: Gnubuntu / Gbuntu / or wathever it’s name will be.

    @Jurriaan – Thanks, changed 😉

    @grey – Yes, and Edubuntu, too. Just not Xubuntu because it isn’t fully “official” or something like that…

    @bartek – I’m curious whether that version of the “Gutsy Gibbon” (not Glossy Gnu) will be available via ShipIt. I don’t think so though, as most people who would want this distribution will probably be able to burn it onto a CD.
