Cheaper CDs

Postby clem on Mon Jun 18, 2007 6:05 am

Hi,

We will be using on-disk.com in the near future to ship CDs worldwide. Compared to what we did for Bianca, this will have the following consequences:

- It will be cheaper ($10 instead of $30)
- The packaging will be simpler (no dvd case, no booklet, just the CD)
- We'll be able to offer more choice, more quickly.

Clem: This is good news!

Would it be possible to also offer (for a higher price, of course) a boxed DVD with more software installed by default (ie, the previous format, with Cassandra)? For those of us with DVD drives, it saves time and might be worth some extra $$ to many.

Just a thought, Dave

I received one as well and I'm really happy with the quality. I've changed the store so we're now pointing at on-disk.com instead of selling our CDs ourselves.

If you like the CD, please leave a review at on-disk.com about it. So far we've sold 5 Cassandra, 1 Bianca and 1 Bianca 5CD pack (I need to get one of these for myself actually :)).

Just ordered a Cassandra 3.0 BULK package with the logo of my office, as a gift for my best customers... and incitation to come to Linux :)
I am really happy with the service of on-Disk.com. Very nice people. Very nice support by Karlie.
Minties, as owner of your companies, that's a good deal for you and a good thing for our distro, I think :wink:
