Actually I think Ubunty advertises a DVD, not a CD. If that is correct
then your argument is invalid. And Debian is not Ubuntu anyway.

I also mirror Ubuntu, and they advertise a single CD per "flavour" or whatever they call it. That is one "desktop" (gnome), one KDE, one server, etc CD image for normal installations. If you want packages outside the default install you have to either have networking or dig around to find the DVDs etc.
