Walnut Creek CD-ROM is selling the CD for ~$40, becasue you are paying for
the CD. You are also paying to help keep cdrom.com up. If you want it for
"free" then download it off the internet, or better yet borrow it from a
friend or someone who just has a copy. If you look hard enough you can
find people who will loan or just give you a copy (Yes Scott, there is a
Santa). Don't be distracted from Walnut Creek making a profit from running
the largest and fastest ftp site, to FreeBSD being free. The people who
write FreeBSD and the ports or associated programs do not want money for
their efforts, for sometimes money is just not enough.
