+ - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS won't fit in a CD-> 1

gbl08ma writes "According to various sources, the ISO image size for the upcoming, Long-Term supported Ubuntu version "Precise Pangolin" will not fit in a regular CD, since the image size is expected to weight around 750MB instead of the usual ~700MB.
The idea is that users should either flash the image to a USB flash drive or burn it to a DVD.
The extra room on the disc image could allow for integration of more GNOME3 components and Canonical applications.
There was also a proposal to use a 1.5GB DVD image as the default download for Ubuntu 12.04."

  • Now that is is going to be a dvd maybe they could consolidate the normal install/live disk, the server edition, and the alternate install, on to one disk, well they are at it maybe they could put multiple graphical environments on the same disk.
