As others already pointed out, the vast majority does not need a 700 MB CD.


The majority don't need or want something, so the minority, even though
unable to switch to become majority members, cannot have it: the main flaw of
democracy.

I won't be switching to sticks any time soon, if ever. I don't foresee the
price of a stick dropping to anywhere near the level of a single OM, but the
bigger problem is they're too tiny to legibly label what they contain. I
don't foresee a solution for that media management problem ever happening.

you could install GRUB2 onto the USB stick and boot the OSes contained
inside ISOs, you could also have a menu to select from them.

aside from that i recently had a problem with a rather new HP notebook
that could not boot from USB, it just freezed when attaching the USB
stick during boot.

so a live media that one is able to burn onto CD/DVD is still very much needed

PS.: Will mailing lists ever learn that HTML is useful? Will they ever
be configured properly that "Reply" works in any MUA?
