My understanding was that people would want to buy distros for two main
1. They don't have bandwidth or a friend with that and a CDR.
2. The documentation/support you get (if you buy from RedHat/Suse/etc).
It seems like you're mostly looking at (1). That's fair enough, but
consider the needs you could meet in (2). I presume you don't want into
support, but take a look at:
your nearest mirror is probably
from the point of viwe of perhaps a package which could include Hard
Copies (or CDROMs) of various elements of the Linux Documentation Project.
This could be very valuable to a home user. Certain well chosen
Docs/howtos in hard copy along with there first copy of whatever distro.
Many more advanced users with low bandwidth might well want to buy
CDROM(s) with all the HOWTOs and a few of the Guides.
