You need to consider where DVDs readers are cheap and where (in the
world) new PCs are being sold including them. If it's in USA and
Europe and your user base is just there, go ahead, if not you will
need to stick with plain old CDs, publishing bigger (DVD) images too.
Debian and Ubuntu do the right thing atm, IMHO.
