New install image for DVD & usb sticks

Registered by Jerone Young on 2010-05-11

Today Ubuntu install media is limited to 700MB due to the the size of a CD. But now many are using DVD & usb sticks with at least 1 or 2 gigs in size. If Ubuntu would generate a much larger image (but not as large as the DVD iso generated now):

                                 - jockey integration into Ubiquity. Have proprietary drivers on media so users can have a faboulous install
                                   experience on hardaware with nvidia graphics, ati, or broadom wierless
                                 - Language suppor would be on the media
                                 - More possabilities.
                                 * Today Canonical OEM services is generating this very thing based on the standard CD so OEMs have all
                                    needed language packages during install.
