Netbeans offers free CDs

Those of you who have worked with the new Netbeans might be pleased to hear that is allowing you to order a free CD containing: NetBeans IDE 5.5, NetBeans Mobility Pack 5.5, NetBeans Profiler 5.5 and Sun Java System Application Server 9.0_1 Platform Edition.

I'm not sure how long it takes to ship but it saves you some downloading and it comes all on 1 CD. Another great thing is, it also contains Windows, Linux, Solaris x86, Solaris SPARC and Mac OS X versions of Netbeans too.

They also say that before shipping, they will publish the latest version of Netbeans which is also a good thing and I'm pretty sure that it will also contain the latest JDK.

Just drop over to for a free Netbeans CD.
I also saw a C/C++ Pack addon for it to develop in C/C++.
EDIT: The C/C++ addon for Windows requires Cygwin. Thanks to rustypup from (who dug a bit deeper than I) LOL!
