Shrink Quantal ISO?
 
Can this be done by offering an alternate ISO that is somewhat stripped down
so that we can still use a CD? Would it make any difference to remove
language packs and office software (which can always be downloaded later
on). Or, even better, make an iso that will install a base OS and then
demand an internet connection to get the rest?


If we don't, we can forget about anyone installing on an old PC, where
Xubuntu normally makes a great alternative to Windows and other Linux
distros.

We are looking at shrinking all the Quantal ISOs to fit CD's.

Shrink Quantal ISO?
 
Er, am I wrong, or shouldn't that the alternate images will disappear in 12.10 Beta 1?

I believe that is the case for Ubuntu,
but not Xubuntu.
