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.

The Fedora Unity Project used to provide images containing Everything, but I don't know if they still do.

Enterprise NAS storage is expensive; it's not just a matter of popping down to the local TigerDirect or Fry's and sticking another My Book on a shelf. And then the mirrors. Won't someone please think of the mirrors?! – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Sep 3 '10 at 6:37
