while digging through old www.d.o bugs in the bts i found the following
text in english/distrib/index.wml:

Buy a set of CDs or DVDs from one of the vendors selling Debian CDs and
install from it.


Here are the basic advantages of CDs prepared by someone else:

    * Installation from a CD set is more straightforward.
    * You can install on machines without an Internet connection.
    * You can install Debian (on as many machines as you like) without
      downloading all packages yourself.
    * The CD can be used to more easily rescue a damaged Debian system.

ERR, WHAT? Sorry, but i don't get those reasons. Can we please reword
that? #504738 suggests to just drop "prepared by someone else" but i
would say it needs more than that.

Any suggestions?
