The Ubuntu 10.10 CDs (Ubuntu and Kubuntu desktop as well as Ubuntu server) are available for purchase in the Canonical store.
Canonical will still provide free CDs through ShipIt (
not yet available for Ubuntu 10.10 - already available for Ubuntu 10.10) but if you can afford it, you could buy the CD and help Canonical and Ubuntu.
You can buy a minimum of 5 CDs and the estimated shipping date is 18 October, 2010. Why 5 CDs? Well, you can share it with your friends, family and so on.
Thanks to Ubuntu Life for the news.
