Debian Linux DVDsUpdate: We are now shipping Debian Wheezy 7.5 on DVDs, we are also limiting CDs to the first 4 CDs since there is little demand for CDs (Most requests are for DVDs), If you need the CDs rather than the DVDs (over the first 4), please let us know (and tell us why), and we will gladly download the remaining CDs for you and burn them to disks.
We are very excited now that Debian Wheezy (7) is out, and we are shipping worldwide really really cheap, $0.5 a DVD + shipping, we are located in Jordan, but that is not stopping our marvelous courier Aramex from shipping absolutely everywhere, in some places we even have cash on delivery, we are also collecting shipping quotes from other companies, we have couriers that ship out really fast, just contact us and place your order.
NOTE: The DVDs we will be shipping out for you are plain DVDs with no stickers even, we do this to cut down on the cost to you, we are going for (cost price) and we are just doing this for Debian and potential debian users.

Why we do it
We do it to help spread Debian Linux in a country where download traffic costs an average 2JDs per gigabyte (Example: 3JDs if you are using a prepaid zain dongle), 2 Jordanian Dinars is the equivalent of $2.8 U.S. Dollars
When Debian Wheezy (7) is out, we are also planning to deploy BitTorrent on some of our servers to help debian spread their beautiful distribution, providing cheap DVDs and contributing bandwidth is how we plan to say thank you to Debian, and to give back to a distribution we use on all of our servers (Our hosting platform), and for all our office PCs that run Linux.
We provide the following debian DVDs (Latest Stable 6.0.7).
