Or Is it that I am suffering from inferiority complex vis-a-vis Western countries?

I ordered about 20 Ubuntu CDs from shipit.ubuntu.com,

But when they reached me , I found to my dismay that they were not 20. May be they sent me 15. but thepackage label says 20. HOw come they got reduced to 15?

besides the packages was in a battered condition, jis nay mujhey shak main pehlay dala, aur phir 5 CDs ki absence nay confirm kar diya...

I agree that I did not pay a single penny for the CDs, but , Dude , next time I am not gonna trust Pakistan Post at ny cost.

I ordered that much CDs to be distributed among my friends...

Alas!!! dakoo rasstey main baithey huay they.....
I wonder what would have " that person got in return for those CDs?"

may be the guy/girl who stole them knew they were free...

besides it's linux for the whole humanity. so 5 cds were just took by the
humanity.
nothing to worry. next time order 5 extra cds thats all.

Looks to me you have been over looking your friendly Pakistan Post :). You should promote Open Source among them also :wink:

why is it fair? why is duty being charged on free (both as in gpl and cost) software?
