Rather then patronizing the users that come to us asking for CD media,
saying they don't know what they want, we provide what they ask for. You
think of that as a thoughtless process but then again I'm used to you
saying things like that about me, I grew a thick skin over the years.

If by better alternatives you mean net-install, please do realize not
everyone has a network infrastructure or fast internet connection.

If by better alternatives you mean LiveCDs, please note that these do not
allow one to upgrade the existing Fedora installation, nor do they allow as
much flexibility in configuration during the installation procedure.
