I'd like to break CD limit too but we should not forgot there are users
for which CD is top technology from dreams and we have a lot of these
users among some countries...
Where are the numbers to back this nonsense up?
A DVD burner costs ~12 € ... and any computer that old isn't really
that capable of running fedora reasonably anyway.
For me personally CD is history, even
DVD, same 1 GB flash drive. We can afford it. But some people can't
and are our users thanks to the ability to get a cheap OS, that can
run on cheap HW and is still modern.
The question is - how many people will be affected? Or should we
provide some fallback option - stripped down CD media size image? And
make the bigger one primary one?
Well anyone can create a specialized spin for ancient hardware, but we
should not restrict ourselves because of ancient hardware.
