Buy Ubuntu

If you cannot download Ubuntu and do not want to wait ten weeks for your order to arrive, you can purchase a copy of Ubuntu on CD or DVD from different distributors that Canonical works with. These companies package Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu distributions on disc for customers and then for a fee ship them readyto- use to customers.

The Ubuntu web site lists companies that they work with in this venture, so if you are going to pay for a copy of Ubuntu, make sure to purchase it from one of their distributors. Why buy it when you can get it for free? Since you are paying for shipping costs, buying the software from a distributor will help get a copy of Ubuntu into your hands much more quickly than the ten weeks it takes for Canonical to send you a copy.

Ubuntu also charges for large orders of CDs. If you need a large quantity of Ubuntu CDs, they still may ship them to you for free. You can make a special request for Ubuntu CDs if you are a teacher who is passing them out to students, or are attending a trade show and wish to pass them out to attendees. The more reasonable the request, the more likely Canonical will get you the required CDs.
