In brief, perhaps some people would like to recieve a free ubuntu CD before the holidays, but Shipit may take too long. Some forum users can burn their own CDs and mail them (and pay for the stamp) to those who do not own CD burners or do not have broadband internet access. Also, it is possible to download extra packages (like Xubuntu -xfce4) and make a CD for those who cannot download them themselves.
As well, some may have some useful things which are collecting dust but may be helpful to others to get Ubuntu up and running.
For example, a stick of 64 Megs of ram may be the difference between someone being able to run the installer and successfully install or not. In North America, we throw away a lot of thing that others may find useful.
