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.

firstname.lastname@example.org : I have a friend who wants to try ubuntu, but has no way to backup all his files. If anyone has a 15-20gb spare hard drive, it would be appreciated.

firstname.lastname@example.org: Dear Lucas Spglinard, I'm from Uruguay, I will thanks a lot if you can sendme a Kubuntu CD. Please contact me at my e-mail adress. thanks in advance. Estimado Lucas, Soy de Uruguay, te agradecería mucho si puedes enviarme un CD con Kubuntu. Por favor contactarme a mi dirección de e-mail. desde ya muchas gracias.
email@example.com: I am a student in Australia, running ubuntu on an old pc in my room. Problem is I only have a 3.8gb HDD, I regularly run out of space and cannot boot into X.
If anyone had a slightly larger capacity HDD to send me, I would be very appreciative.
firstname.lastname@example.org: I live in kansas, United States of America, and i've been running on windows 98 Second Edition on a network for quite sometime now. I want to switch and learn more in the world of linux. I would be greatful for a CD of Ubuntu, and maybe a small harddrive no smaller then 5GBs but no bigger then 20GBs as my computer may run slow with a bigger slave drive. (As of now I have a 2.1GB slave drive and a 20GB master drive, the 2GB slows down start up(both are western digital).) It would also be nice if I can have a fan for my videocard because it heats up very easly even though its a Viper II z2000 with 32mb of vram. I would thank you very much for any of these, Top priority would be to get Ubuntu because it is way more stabler and securer then Windows 98 SE (Especially it being on a network). Email me if you have any of the above or questions. Thanks much. ~Amber
email@example.com: I am wondering if someone would be willing to make a Xubuntu pc install cd for me. I am the chair of a small new local non-profit in NW Minnesota that has been using(practicing with) Libranet on refurbished computers with the intent to give them away to people of low incomes. Well, just as we're getting comfortable with Libranet, and getting ready to give away our fist couple machines, we've learned that Libranet has basically closed shop. Now we're looking for something to replace it and I think Ubuntu would be perfect, except that we're using older machines (300-400mhz, 64mb memory) and it is way too slow. I read about Xubuntu on the Wiki and forum, but we are not able to do that much downloading each time we want to setup/test a machine. So, if someone is able to make a Xubuntu pc install disk that would we wonderful. Please email me if you have questions. Thanks for your generosity, and many blessings to you this holiday season!
