Over 2200 Debian Official 2-CD Sets Sold in 8 Weeks

August 18th, 1997

Since the start of the Debian Official CD program, just 8 weeks ago, over 2200 2-CD sets have been sold. The number may well be higher, as companies are not required to tell us about their sales. About half of the reported sales are mail-order. Approximately US$3000 in donations have been made so far by CD purchasers, and the checks have started to come in from the CD vendors. A list of CD vendors can be found on our web site, http://www.debian.org/. Anyone can duplicate and sell the Debian 1.3.1 Official 2-CD Set.
