      I am in 3rd year of Information Technology. We generally us windows in our college. But gradually our college is opening up to the idea of opensource operating systems and encouraging the students to switch to linux. But students generally come up with excuses that CD/DVDs of linux are not readily available. Since downloading the linux takes a lot of time, so that is also not an option for everybody. So it would be quite handy to distribute 50 DVDs to the students of my department to take the initiative to the next level. This would be better if the DVDs are sent within a week or two.
