    Hardy Release: Largest Bittorrent download ever in history?

    In a few days, millions of users and potential users are going to download Ubuntu's latest child, Hardy Heron.

    With all the latest press coverage and all the excitement for Ubuntu, I expect this to be the largest Bittorrent based download ever.

    I can not imagine any piece of software legally (or even illegally) available via bittorrent that has ever created more Bittorrent traffic than Ubuntu Hardy Heron will.

    What is you guess - how many millions will download it, how much of the overall available internet bandwith will we consume?

    My guess: Existing user base might be around 30 to 40 million, of which 1/3 will use bitorrent to download the latest i386 .iso.

    I'm prett sure it will be one of the biggest legal bittorrent downloads in history. I'm unsure about the illegal side of things but your probably right!

    I would have thought most downloaders wouldn't use the torrent, presumably the majority will upgrade anyway (or try, given how much load the servers will be under), and of those that download I would have thought that a majority would go for the straight download rather than the torrent...
