I love Ubuntu and I use it since 1985. I decided to download Ubuntu 13.04 but I'm a rookie. If you can send me a CD with that version I would be happiest.

Ubuntu since 1985!? Really? – Eric Carvalho Jul 11 '13 at 18:28
where do we send it? – j0h Jul 11 '13 at 18:43
Please be more specific why you can't download it. Did you get an error message? – papukaija Jul 11 '13 at 18:56
How can you still be a noob after using Ubuntu for 28 years? – BiggJJ Jul 11 '13 at 19:08
First Ubuntu is 4.10 (Warty Warthog), released October, 20 2004. – Mitch Jul 11 '13 at 19:48

Unfortunately, Canonical no longer sends free CDs. However, you can buy CDs from Canonical's shop but they only send packs of 5, 20, 100 or 200 CDs.

Alternatively, some of the commentators seem to be willing to send you one. You didn't mention how the download failed, but you could also try to download the file again from Ubuntu's website and then create a live USB disk, the link has instructions for both Windows, and OS X.

Try contacting your nearest Loco Team there is a list here. They may be able to able send you a CD (perhaps at a nominal cost to cover postage and packaging.

Canonical do sell CDs/DVDs via there shop but they stopped making these with Ubuntu 12.10 except for LTS (Long Term Stable) releases and 13.04 is not an LTS release so is not available.

The easiest way to get Ubuntu should be to download it. You can get it from here

Make sure you check the MD5sum to check the was no error in the transfer and make a DVD or USB stick to install from.
