I think they are moving from cd to dvd due to the amount of software
being included,  I would argue that given that every PC has usb ports
the iso image size is irrelevant given we can use USB flash drives
instead.  What I would like to see is perhaps make full use of a dvd
image so if its going on a 4.7 gb dvd then lets make the most of it.

I have a netbook and emacines 1401,   neither have a cd / dvd drive so I
have to use a flash drive.
