    I have a couple of dumb questions though, for anyone.

    #1: Looking at the posted link:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Zs...uiring_the_ISO

    Why in the world would it say:



    #2: I'd think the torrents listed on Ubuntu's own site, eg;

    http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/precise/release/

    Are just as safe as the zsync or jigdo images, eh

    So, if those two assumptions are true wouldn't it be best to amend that wiki page to say:

    To download a stable iso image is best to use the official torrent file if you can.

    Just my mind running out of control again

    I don't trust the accuracy of my own judgment well enough to edit or create a wiki page.
    I agree with you, about the torrent comment, and have removed it. It looks more like it is someone's personal opinion, rather than an accurate statement.

    Plus, I'm too paranoid to use torrents.

    I *know* downloading Ubu is perfectly legal, but why shine a light on yourself?!?!?

    Same here Vin. Only used torrents a few times with Windows XP. However, some will swear by torrents. Me ? I swear at them lol
