Why is there so much focus on keeping the Ubuntu installer to the very
limited size of a CD-R ISO?
I mean, this modern world of computing we live in, the 700MB capacity of
a CD-R isn't much to play around with really.

I think sooner or later, Ubuntu is going to grow beyond what's possible
to squeez onto a 700MB iso and be forced to adopt the benefits of DVD5
storage. Maybe that time is approaching quicker than expected by some.

Just my 2 cents.
