Free Feisty Fawn CDs!

Originally posted in my Ubuntu Living blog.

Since Ubuntu has been so good to me, I want to pay the favor forward. I am proposing to give out free Feisty CDs for people in the Philippines who don't have quick access to broadband.

If you're from Davao or Dumaguete, drop me a note and I'll tell you when and where you can get your CD. Limit one per person or organization.

If you're from elsewhere in the provinces (excluding, of course, Manila and Cebu), leave your mailing address in the comment box below and I'll send you two CDs by courier. Since I'm nowhere near as moneyed as Mark Shuttleworth, I'll have to limit my offer to the first five (leaving only four as Dave Asuncion has already posted his request).

The CDs won't be anything fancy, most likely just purchased from CD-R King, hand-scrawled with felt-tip marker, and slipped into cheap envelopes. But they should work.

Last two conditions: (1) burn and redistribute to friends; and (2) buy me a beer when we meet.

Fair enough?


  1. Let me put that up as well. I already downloaded Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Edubuntu. If anyone near and around the Marikina area wants a copy, do get in touch with me through this blog.

    I'll mention where we could meet up after. :D

  2. Hello,
    I am Jerome Herrera. I am the owner of Pinoy Penster Community, a website for Amateur and Professional Filipino Writers. I was wondering if we could exchange links. This will give your blog/website a wonderful opportunity to be exposed to our hundreds of visitors everyday. If you are interested, please email me at Pinoy Penster Community is located at

  3. nice. free cds. hehe
    just finished upgrading my pc to ubuntu feisty this morning (after 2 days of frustrated tweaking with dapper).

  4. Hi, Charo: cool! No other takers as yet for me, though.

    Hi, Arci: what were you tweaking? Just curious.

    Hi, Jerome: thanks for the offer, but as a rule I only link to personal blogs that I do read.

  5. a lot... most of which are the how-to's... like having some sort of a wireless/network connection indicator in dapper (which was solved by feisty), ripping and encoding mp3s in ubuntu, etc etc. i have most already covered with a lot of resources from the net.

    right now however i'm still figuring out how to enable the laptop integrated webcam and card reader, how to enable the 1280x768 resolution, among others.

    overall, i'm quite satisfied with ubuntu. makes me feel kind of empowered when it comes to computers.
