Is iDVD really too big to fit on a CD? It wouldnt make sense for them to do it for any other reason cuz all you would need is a combo or DVD drive to install with a DVD and you need a superdrive to use the App

It looks like the CD has iMovie, iPhoto, iTunes.

And that the DVD has those plus iDVD.

This makes sense. That way the people who don't have a combo or superdrive can still install the three iApps thay can use.

And yes, iDVD is really bigger than a single CD's worth of data. iDVD 2 is almost 2 full CDs worth. With iDVD adding more themes, it has to be much larger.

Yep iDVD is too big to fit on a CD. The last revision was something like 800-1000megs.

Although I'm not very sure at all, I do recall someone saying that iDVD was like 2.5 GB, so you'd need more like 4 install CDs.

Why don't they just put the iLife programs on a DVD instead of a 700Meg CD??

[Edit] I'm an idiot. I didn't read the thread before posting. Disregard this.
