Windows is a DVD now
MacOS is a DVD as well

Perhaps its time to move the default Ubuntu release to a DVD also. ;-)
If I remember correctly the main reason it hasn't been so far is due to
distribution issues as a DVD is 4.5GiB vs 700MiB for a CD. Thus it would
take a very long time to download for a large percentage of the world.
Although perhaps this is not as big an issue since many places have a
bandwidth cap as well so people wouldn't be downloading the image in the
first place?
