Ubuntu 10.10 CDs are available now for pre-order through Shipit. The preferred method is to download the image from the Ubuntu website but people who are unable to download the latest version due to resource constraints, can order the CDs.
The delivery may take as long 10 weeks so the best and quickest method still would be to get the new version through downloads section.
Also, you can help Shipit by donating some amount as sending new CDs can be expensive to meet ever increasing demand. This way you can help Ubuntu to reach to a large number of people who may otherwise not discover or use Ubuntu. To donate please visit the Ubuntu Shipit page.
