Buy Linux on DVD

Posted by Gary Newell  |  at  22:53 No comments

Introduction

Internet connectivity has come on in leaps and bounds over the past few years. If you live in the middle of a city then you probably have high speed broadband which can download a Linux ISO in minutes, if not seconds.

For those of us who live in the country, downloading an ISO is still a challenge and can take an hour or more.

My broadband download speed is still less than 1 mb. Shocking isn't it. To get around this I use mobile broadband which gives me an astoundingly good 5 mb on a good day.

Mobile broadband comes at a cost and the cost is download limits. In the UK there isn't a single mobile operator providing HSPA mobile broadband with a limit greater than 15 gb a month.

I have three ways to obtain a Linux distribution.
  • Download the ISO in town (when I am at work I can pop into a library and download the ISO)
  • Download using the mobile broadband and use up some of my limit
  • Buy a Linux DVD

OSDisc.com

I have found a company called OSDisc.com which I link to from each article on the Linux Reviews page. When you click on the buy link for any review you are redirected to OSDisc.com.

I have created some sections below to hopefully make it easier to find the distribution you are looking for.

Remember to check out the reviews page to see what I thought of the distribution. I haven't managed to review every distribution listed below but I am getting there.
