If you use torrents, it's an extremely good time to download 11.10.

If you've been using Ubuntu for a while, the development versions are a good time to install Ubuntu; then you can report bugs. Want to try that next time and help improve Ubuntu's quality?

Just don't use the download link on the main ubuntu.com site. That had me downloading at 100kb/s.

Went to release.ubuntu.com -> 5000kb/s+

Took 2 mins to download.

Thought I was doing good at 1500KB/s; have to try that next time.

I agree. Especially now, since there are tons of seeders. I can easily max out my net connection on torrents. Plus, I like the sharing aspect of torrents. I've already uploaded 9 copies of ubuntu, and will seed 3 versions (kubuntu, ubuntu, and lubuntu) until next release.

Note that Retlol is using kilobits (kb/s) and you are using kilobytes (KB/s). 1 kb/s = .125 KB/s.

I have a 2.5MB/s download pipe and there are never enough seeders for Ubuntu releases to come anywhere close to filling that pipe. At one time yesterday, I was seeding 5 peers and they couldn't max out my 625KB/s upload pipe. Each of the 5 peers were pulling less than 1000kb/s.

I think you probably meant 1500kb/s.

Yes, your right

Sorry, I generally don't use P2P, because P2P networks like to penalize people for not having a huge (like 15 Mbit+) upload.

P2P networks often don't like DSL users. :(
(Even when mine is ADSL2)

So I likely would be crawling at a sub-1 Mbit download!

That stinks. I have unlimited bandwidth, and p2p is 24/7 for me. I like seeding distros for months at a time.
