Canonical Axe Ubuntu Discs for Non-LTS Releases


The company say that going forward physical copies of Ubuntu will only be produced for Long Term Support releases, starting with Ubuntu 14.04 next year.

Ubuntu 13.04, and its successor in Ubuntu 13.10, will still be free to download and to burn to a DVD or USB of your own. But physical printed copies will not be sold by Canonical through the Ubuntu Shop or made available for Ubuntu LoCo Teams to distribute at educational events.

The Ubuntu Loco Council quote Canonical as saying that Ubuntu 12.04 CDs/DVDs will be supplied to Loco teams ‘to bridge the gap till 14.04′.
