But if you go to install to begin with after SP3 is out, you don't get a non-
SP CD and then spend 40 hours downloading updates, right?  So for people who 
switch to Kubuntu in 2011 and want an LTS so they get 10.04... having 10.04's 
CD will mean having to download *many* more updates than having a 10.04.2 CD.
