The standard deal for discs is simple:

These prices do not include P&P. I used to include it free, but Royal Mail prices have gone up substantially recently. If you're ordering a reasonably large number of discs, I can normally be talked into a discount / free postage anyway. I can also provide CDs if you want, but prefer not to do so these days - most machines will read DVDs and they're much quicker to use!

I'm Steve McIntyre and I'm a Debian developer and the team lead of "debian-cd", the group that creates and publishes official Debian CDs and DVDs. To help cover the cost of bandwidth and storage for my own local Debian mirror, I sell CD-R/DVD-R/BD-R copies of Debian. If you wish to pay extra for your discs I'll pass along the surplus as a donation to Debian and add you to my debian-uk Donors list.

I'm happy to ship anywhere in the world. BUT: If you're outside the EU I may have to ask you for extra for postage, and if you're outside the UK getting money to me may be more difficult/expensive. In either case it may be easier to try the Debian Vendors List for somebody closer to you.

I offer a discount to other Debian people and to charities - ask me...

How to order

Contact me by email first. Please do not just send orders to me by snail-mail; I'd always rather have an email address so I can contact you easily in case of any problems.

Discs available

The standard discs I do are currently:

  1. Wheezy (7.4.0) discs:

    Wheezy, the latest stable Debian release...!

    Wheezy takes a different number of CDs/DVDs/BDs depending on the architecture. Check the lists at http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/ to see exactly how many, and which packages fit on which disc(s).

    As a guide, amd64 or i386 take 10 DVDs each if you want the whole set, but it's not likely that you will want them all. For most people, a set of just the first 2 or 3 DVDs is likely to include all the bits you'll need. All the source fits on 8 DVDs.

  2. Wheezy (7.0.0 to 7.4.0) update discs:

    For people who have an older version of our current release (Wheezy) on CD/DVD/BD, update discs are a cheaper way of updating it to the latest point release than buying a complete new set of discs. These contain just the changed packages needed to upgrade, or the sources for them. These discss should work fine with any existing set: use apt-cdrom to add to the end of the set.

    NOTE: these update discs will only work for upgrades within the Wheezy series; if you have an older system (e.g. Squeeze) or want to move forwards to Wheezy, then you'll need a full set.

  3. Squeeze (6.0.9) discs:

    Squeeze takes a different number of CDs/DVDs/BDs depending on the architecture. Check the lists at http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/archive/6.0.7/ to see exactly how many, and which packages fit on which disc(s).

  4. Squeeze (6.0.0 to 6.0.9) update discs:

    For people who have an older release of our older release (Squeeze) on CD/DVD/BD, update discs are a cheaper way of updating it to the latest point release than buying a complete new set of discs. These contain just the changed packages needed to upgrade, or the sources for them. These discss should work fine with any existing set: use apt-cdrom to add to the end of the set.

    NOTE: these update discs will only work for upgrades within the Squeeze series; if you have an older system (e.g. Lenny) or want to move forwards to Squeeze, then you'll need a full set.

  5. Sid (unstable) / Jessie (testing):

    Probably only for developers - not guaranteed to be useable in any way, but you may find them useful. Ask me...

I am able and happy to create CDs for architectures other than i386/amd64, but I am unable to test them as much, or in some cases at all.

If you want custom discs/images made, let me know and I may be able to help.
