How to get Free ubuntu 10.10 CD (Maverick Meerkat)

The Ubuntu ShipIt program, which provides free Ubuntu Desktop and Server CD’s to users , is now taking pre-order requests for free Ubuntu 10.10 desktop and server CD’s.

The ShipIt service can be used by users with low-bandwidth, intermittent internet connections or other reasons for being unable to download the latest Ubuntu release.
With requests now being accepted the order page duly notes: -
Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) has not been released yet, They will  send you a CD after release. Note that delivery will take from six to ten weeks once it is sent.

Help ShipIt

The costs involved with providing access to Ubuntu for those unfortunate to get access to the swift and easy online downloads are great.
As such users should not take advantage of the ShipIt service unless otherwise unable to acquire an Ubuntu release.
The ‘Help ShipIt’ initiative allows users to help contribute to these costs, thus making Ubuntu accessible to people or communities who may not otherwise discover or use it.
More information on Help ShipIt and pre-orders for ShipIt CD’s head over to
