As discussed with a few people during LinuxTag in Berlin this year I
think CD/DVDs are not that usefull.

Instead it would be greate to create USB Sticks with Debian Installer on
them and sell them (below cost if enough sponsoring is found). An USB
Stick is more likely to boot todays systems and can be easily updated or
reused for other things when the installer becomes too old. CD/DVDs you
just have to throw away.

Has anyone worked on a multiarch boot image featuring i386, amd64,
kfreebsd-i386 and kfreebsd-amd64?
