You can order your free Ubuntu CDs from http://shipit.ubuntu.com. By default Ubuntu comes with Gnome desktop environment. If you are an absolute beginner to Linux I would highly recommend Ubuntu. Other wise you can also order free CDs for Ubuntu’s K desktop environment Kubuntu, from http://shipit.kubuntu.org.
Remember these CDs will take atleast 4 to six weaks to arrive. You can get Ubuntu quickly if you order your CDs from Linux Pakistan (Rs. 35 only + shipping charges). Feel free to contact Tariq Farooqi for any questions, information or details.
There are many other ways to get Ubuntu CDs. Check out your local computer hardware and software stores and shops. Contact Pakistan Linux User Community members in your town if any one of them has spare Ubuntu CDs they would love to help you. I am one of the PLUC members so feel free to contact me if you are in Karachi.
You dont have to buy cd just download from thier website but you must have minimum 2gb usb
I need Ubuntu too……….i am in quetta and i do not know the zip code
I am an old Linux user but haven’t gotten much chance to participate at PLUC due to time constraints. Pakistani uses can also get Ubuntu (and other distros which they might need) from http://www.linux-pakistan.net for Rs.30 (for CD) and Rs.100 (for DVD). This is a relatively new site and hence not much known to linux users in Pakistan.
It has been particularly useful for me since I live in Islamabad and can avoid the shipping which I would have incurred in case of PLUC in Karachi. In fact, I got Ubuntu 7.04 Fiesty Fawn from them and its running fine since I installed it over the older 6.06 LTS. I would strongly recommend them!
I want to know that how much it costs for shipping linux???
