Canonical Stops Offering Ubuntu on Disc

The times are changing and Canonical is changing with them. In this particular case it means the end to low cost Ubuntu on CD. CD and DVD players are beginning to disappear from computer builds more frequently now and Canonical has responded to that signal from its users. Canonical ended their ShipIt service back in 2011 when you could order the latest version on a CD for free. Times, they are a-changing. cool

Canonical wouldn’t be doing this if demand for the discs was still there and made it economically viable. But I think we have all moved on and a download is much faster nowadays.
