LinuxMall: What's the catch?

comp.os.linux.setup in these words:

Why not?

If you get the $1.99 special from Linux Mall or cheapbytes, you
don't get:
  1. tech support
  2. an installation manual
  3. source code
  4. some demos or freebies that are bundled with the boxed versions

If you don't want or need that stuff, the inexpensive CDs are a great
way to go, much faster than ftp.
