For the last two years Zyxware has been successfully running a low
cost Free Software CD/DVD distribution service at People across India have been
utilizing this service to get access to the different Free Software
Operating Systems and other Free Software packages without having to
download them from the internet. Although we were running the service
at an at-cost policy and we did not promote it other than through the
user groups, it had succeeded in reaching to different parts across
the country. We are extremely grateful to the people who have helped
us in spreading the word about the RequestCD service.

We had to take down the old system as part of upgrading our site and
we have re-launched the Request CD service under an online shop at The requestcd URL will
take you directly to the list of Free Software distributions and
packages available from us. There are currently around 250 different
distributions, versions and full repositories available.

If you do not see a Free Software OS distributions or repository
online at the shop you can please let us know by email at and we will try to download and add them to the

If you like this service I would humbly request you to consider
blogging/twittering about the service and help us spread the word
about it. I hope that you will continue to find our Free Software
services useful and help us in spreading the power of Free Software
across the country. I look forward to hearing your
