Breezy CDs are starting to ship now. First out the door are some high 
priority orders for LoCo Teams and conferences.  We'll be bringing a 
large number (around 1000) to Montreal and there should be some 
available for you. I can't promise a specific number though - need to 
see how things go.

That's great!  One of the things we'd like to focus on in the coming 
months is how to get the most mileage out of the CDs.  We've learned 
that it is very easy to hand out large numbers of CDs. Now we need to 
focus on quality as well as quantity - i.e., turning hand-outs into 
installs and focusing the CDs on the people who can't get Ubuntu through 
other channels like downloads.  Ideas welcome!
