I'm not sure about the value of buying a boxed set. It's a tricky one --
normally I'm the type that likes to have the Real Thing(tm) - I download MP3's
for example, but I'll usually go out and buy the CD if I like them, otherwise
they get trashed anyway. But with Linux, the advantage isn't immediately
obvious -- you can download the manuals from the websites - and they're
searchable - and pretty much everything that's available on CD is also available
on the net. If I had a CD burner, I reckon I'd probably not buy the boxed set.
I did get some nice stickers though... :)
