Yes, Ubuntu has a DVD edition, available through and from

Edubuntu, starting with Feisty, will also have a DVD edition:

These DVDs, I think, are basically the entire official repository, with 
both live and alternate installers. They are not intended to replace the 
cds, and there was a recent discussion on ubuntu-dev about whether 
Ubuntu should be shipped as a dvd (for space reasons) where it was 
decided, for the time being, that Ubuntu should continue to stick to the 
one cd formula.
