Infomagic (and others) made their own Debian CDs historically, and many
times they didn't work.  So you'd buy their CD and it was broken, which
made Debian look totally stupid.  So there is no implication involved -
unofficial CDs seem to suck in at least some cases - even widely distributed
unofficial CDs.  I've never had problems with an "official" CD, so I'd say
the unofficial ones I've used _are_ less worthy than the official images.
