There are also legal problems associated with some software, that varies
from country to country, which Canonical could be liable for.
I also feel that downloading a DVD size image is a waste of bandwidth if
there's only a few things on it that I require. Plus software on the DVD
is liable to be out of date after a while so you still have to download
the updated version from the repos.
