Is it really worth spending a lot of money on DVDs to give away? Our
experience in the UK is that it's just not worth it: the vast majority
just get dropped in the bin. We used to sell CDs and DVDs, but even
that has stopped these days. Anybody (just about!) who's interested in
trying a distro will have enough broadband or similar, so we don't
bother carrying them around any more. People come to talk to us, or to
ask for help with problems, or to get their keys signed, or to buy

Is it really this different in Germany?
