CDs are still useful though,  The cost of a spindle of CD-r vs the same
number of usb flash disks is that hte cd['s are cheaper.  And can be
given away at install events.

Plus in some ways a Debian CD has a longer useful life. If I made a cd
of Debian 10.0 it is still useful for istalling Debian 10.9 (when released).

I think they are also a cheap thing to give out at install days too.
