Shipit Now Accepting Pre-Orders for Ubuntu 10.10 CDs

Shipit, the Ubuntu “store” for making free Ubuntu CDs available, is now accepting pre-orders for the upcoming version 10.10, Maverick Meerkat. Shipit is intended for people who have limited bandwidth and are unable to download and burn their own Ubuntu CDs. Shipit CDs are also responsible for introducing many new users to Ubuntu.

With this release comes a new feature of Shipit – the ability to donate money to help Canonical continue to make CDs available to people who need this service. As I have used Shipit in the past and had no problems with it, I have already donated.

Remember that release day is October 10 – on a Sunday – and not a normal Thursday event. If you are not using Shipit and have not already downloaded Ubuntu 10.10, you should consider downloading it now and not waiting until everyone is pounding the servers on release day.
