A note here about the Dapper Drake (6.10) Ubuntu/Kubuntu release LiveCDs. Looks like they’re finally going to add an installer onto their LiveCDs. While this already exists on their LiveDVDs, it would be nice for the DVD-less computers. Also it would be nice if the installer ran from inside the Live environment, like it does on Knoppix, MEPIS, PCLinuxOS, or others.
Free CDs for Kubuntu through shipit should be available for the next release if the planned Live CD Installer removes the need for a separate install CD.
