After delivering millions of Ubuntu CDs to millions of new users, our ShipIt programme has finally run its course. While we can no longer deliver free CDs through the programme, it’s still easy to get Ubuntu. You can download Ubuntu for free from or you can buy a CD straight from the Canonical shop.

The ShipIt service was created back in 2005 to distribute free CDs with the Ubuntu OS, to millions of people around the world. With they informed you that the ShipIt Programme has been closed! Users will not be able to order free CDs of Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) or any future version. Now we wont be getting out favorite Ubuntu CD’s Shipped for free.

So, What do I do now?

That’s not to say there won’t be CDs. Starting with 11.04, users will no longer be able to order free CDs, but CDs will continue to be provided to approved LoCos through a Shipit-like programme.

CDs will remain available for users to buy from the Canonical store, or, as has always been the case, the option of burning your own for duplication and distribution exists.
