Debian has blu-ray images available.

Debian project leader Steve McIntyre, on the developer mailing list, 
describes the version as including the "biggest change" in recent 
history. Because a standard Blu-ray disk holds up to 25 Gbytes of data, 
McIntyre continues, "for the first time in several years, users should 
be able to fit all of the packages for one architecture on a single 
disc. Woo!"
