Ubuntu 12.04 .ISO Will remain 700MB


Ubuntu image of the up coming version size being raised from the sub standard 700MB size of previous releases to 700+ MB, which we can’t hold the Ubuntu installation image in single CD and required to have DVD-R/RW.

But, now we can relax, for the final release Ubuntu will be sized to fit on a regular sized 700MB blank CD-R/W.

Ubuntu’s Stéphane Graber Stating that:

“The only tweak that was done was on the exact size of what a CD is, where the old check was for 700MB and the new one is for 703MB as we found most (if not all) current burning tools and drives accept this.”

So it’s still coasters ahoy for the Pangolin!
