Also another thing worth noting, if it is called speakup-modified,
that would tell me that it has speakup included.  I have never heard
of anyone charging for speakup.  I suppose if speakupmodified.org were
to sell hard copies of the DVDs, they could charge a small fee for the
media, shipping and handling, Bill, Janina and whoever else is
involved in that project could keep the project funded and provide the
needed bandwidth with less personal out of pocket expence.

As for the CDs being dropped, that does bug me some; I have an old
laptop here that I like to run linux on but it doesn't have a DVD
reader in it.  I doubt I can find one either.  But then again, Debian
comes in its full form at some 31 plus CDs; the same in DVD form would
be only 5 or 6 disks.  So I can appreciate the end of the CD coming at
that rate but network installers can certainly fit on a single CD and
one could be sure that has speakup in it.  That would enable older
systems to continue using linux and install such.
