I am considering buying a CD, and for lack of a better titled forum, I am posting my question here.

On the business card CD, is there a label similar to the pictured CD on the main damnsmalllinux webpage?

When going to the order page, the business card CD it shows is an unlabeled silver 50 mg CD.  I've looked through the forums, and the FAQs and don't see any information about this.

Also, if anyone has ordered a CD, can you tell me about how long it took to ship within the US?

Thank you,

hi Michelle,

i personally have not bought any damnsmalllinux cds before (i do not think it's sane to send a small cd from the US to Singapore.)  but i think it comes in a sleeve.

a label on the cd i'm not too sure about, but judging from the picture on the cd page, and this description : "The CDs will be generic 80mm by 60 mm rounded end 'business card size' CD-Recordable; not the square ended variety.", i dont think it has a label. it's 'generic'...

live long and prosper

They're blank with "Damn Small Linux" and the version number written in sharpie marker on them.  Or at least they were when I bought mine in version 0.7.x.  Probably a little better now.

I ordered mine on December 28 and it came today January 3rd, standard USPS mail, California to Texas.  I'd say that's fast, and there was a holiday in between.  

Blank silver with Damn Small Linux and 0.9.1 written on it in sharpie, same as Fordi's 0.7.x version.  

Booted up first time, no problem.  I like the small form factor.  

I'd pay double for one with a professionally silk screened or digitally printed DSL logo on it like the one on the main page at Damn Small Linux.  And if there were a reasonable bulk price for 10 at a time, I'd buy them that way and hand them out to my friends.  Several people I've talked to about DSL have found it fascinating that you can get a really functional operating system on a 50meg business card sized CD.  A pretty picture would enhance the coolness factor enormously.  Oh John... Business opportunity here.   :;):

I would like to be able to buy a dozen or two nicely screen printed blank hockey-rink style CD-Rs  I could upgrade as needed and write the version with a sharpie.
