Sun suspends NetBeans IDE DVD Starter Kit distribution program

NetBeans free delivery of IDE DVD starter kid is no more...

Sun has suspended their NetBeans IDE DVD Starter Kit distribution program indefinitely. Yes, you read it correctly; they have done it. So many developers used to get most of Sun (free) products through the distribution program. Students with less bandwidth (in some colleges & universities); specially users without Internet access to home computers are fond of this service as NetBeans DVDs are freely delivered to their hands at no cost.

According to NetBeans.org;
Since August 30th, 2005, NetBeans.org has shipped more than 225,000 CDs & DVDs to developers around the world through this initiative! During this period, NetBeans has experienced explosive growth as a download, media kit, and a community. To stay ahead of this encouraging trend we are looking into ways to effectively satisfy increasing demand for NetBeans software worldwide.

For sure this service played a huge role in helping so many Java developers. Also the program is a good marketing option for NetBeans since Eclipse (the best free Java IDE) provides no such services, rather than allowing free downloads. Sun also has decided to follow the same; stick only for free downloads. However the Starter Kit is available for download as an ISO image. In near future, they may offer downloads via mirrors and bit torrents; but not sure how near that future is. Anyway we are grateful to the service Sun did provide us.
