dual layered DVD's vs single layer etc....
Dear Debian people,
This is a pretty dumb question. But I think it has a little merit. I
bought myself a new Benq DVD rewriter and stuffed in my box. This one can
handle dual layered DVDs as well as the single ones.
I then realised after nosing around in the computer shop that dual layered
DVDs have a capacity of 8.5GB c.f. the single layered ones of 4.4GB.
What a genius this guy is I here you say.
A doubling of storage is what you would expect.
My point is that whereas the Sarge 3.1 r3 release contains 15 CDs, Etch
comprises 21 CDs......
Or 3 DVDs..... But of course these are 3 single layer 4.4 GB DVDs.
Once Etch comes out and everyones starts to work on Lenny, then maybe it
could get to thirty CDs or 4 or 5 DVDs.
Once it gets to that size would dual layered DVD iso images be considered to
be parked in the repositories?
