Apparently your definition of complete differs from the common definition.

In any case, go ask the average joe what the storage capacity of a
CD-R is. Now ask him what size an average Linux distro might be. Now
ask him if that Linux distro will likely or likely not fit on that

Ask a non-geek friend, or relative. Because according to Bug #1, that
is Ubuntu's target audience.
