    both 64bit so i assume 32bit would be even smaller

    theres alot more space they can use to include stuff like full language packs and stuff like that on the image.
    The current trusty ISO is 909mb 64bit and 922mb 32bit this extra size excuse is bullshit

      Just a friendly reminder that those are DAILY. They do not worry about squeezing it really far down until the actual release.
      That being said, yes, the size argument is retarded.

          Game changing in what way?

            I think the out of the box experience is important, i usually give hints which ISO would fit best for a hd install for a specific use case and hardware. If you need more customisation it is easy to build images with different apps/drivers preinstalled. Usually i am done with a fully working Linux hd install incl. some tools I can not add to the standard ISO images in less than 30 mins when installed from usb key (with nighly images you save the time to run an update later). In that time you might have installed Win 8.1 but you still run updates and install 3 d drivers, and you did not have time to install an office app or 3rd party browser/mail client yet. Win 7 Sp1 would be a much huger pain to update after install. But you seem to have plenty of time for your OS installs...

              yippy skippy!

              I know every one is upset about vdpau not being including in ubuntu.. But look at the bright side.. You get 8 megabytes of free space to use instead! WOW! That's like 8,388,608 bytes of infinite space! Think of all the pixel-art and text files you will be able to store on your 4TB hard-drive with all that extra space......amazing! Thanks ubuntu! You always know exactly what your users want!..

                You miss the point Bacon, its 8MB's they save on the LiveCD's, which they apparently are still trying to force onto an 800mb CD..

                  Size....really?

                  Could Ubuntu not just offer two options?
                  A CD size image for most basic functionality, and a second larger image, up to the size of of DVD that has the best selection of software and options enabled for the best user experience.

                    i apreciate they keep it clean but not including stuff like this is bad.
                    if its something that isnt critial i would stand on theyr side, this is not the case

                      It's more like 1MB on the liveCDs after compression. And they could easily add a vdpau package in their main repository that just isn't installed by default. At least then you could get an official version rather than having to search for a PPA.
