    Alot of newer Linux ISOs are being distributed using BitTorrent so the companies don't get raped on bandwidth. :cool:

    I can;t remember which release it was, but when one of the distro's latest version was released, it was spreading through BT faster than of the companie's FTP servers and mirror's.

    The latest Knoppix cd was released through BT. I fired up my client and was getting it at >300KBps. Which is ALOT faster than the normal speeds I got off their FTP servers.
