Proposition 1: I cannot download an entire distro from the web. I never
downloaded more then 5Mega from the Web.

Proposition 2: my last Debian was a 2r2 (6 CDs from Schlittermann), but
I do not remember the codename. It is 2 year old, I think.
Proposition 3: I wish the last Debian; I can wait for the last
official Debial release ( 2.4* kernel and X11 4.*, etc).

Browsing the Schlitterman site I'd read about the Woody release, but
Schlittermann say: this is non official, special release. I dislike
special releases. So, I will wait the official release.

Proposition 3: I'm NOT interested in distribution over 2 CD,
because I can buy them at every newspaper kiosk.

See Proposition 3 :-)

See Proposition 1 :-)
