The sheer size of the various versions along with the number of platforms and versions takes up a vast amount of space (12 to 20 GB per version-platform, 3 or 4 platforms per version, 7 versions) makes providing both individual packages and ISOs for the various media (CD, DVD, etc.) ridiculously expensive.
