Why not a DVD iso version too?

I personally cannot understand everyone's fascination with a DVD
installer.  If everyone is so intent on using the "latest and greatest",
why do they want to install packages from the CD (or DVD), rather than
using ports?

Bandwidth, to me, is no excuse, because it takes less bandwidth to
download the ports tree + source code than it does to download a 4GB

Either way, there is a DVD available at freebsdmall.
