thats right! Live spin should not  more than cd size. Most ppl in  my
country do not have enough bandwidth to download a dvd. Thats equall
true for most developing countres?  **So, dont make it hard for us to
get fedora** thoug we can collect the dvd from local vendor but its
month after a release!!
Do u expect at 17KB/s i will be able to download a dvd??
