How to download Ubuntu Desktop using BitTorrent

📅 2013-Mar-17 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

The main download webpage of Ubuntu Desktop allows you to download the ISO files using HTTP. I have found that downloading these large files using the browser is really slow and sometimes leaves them incomplete or corrupted.

Instead, I find that using BitTorrent to download these ISO files is not only faster, but also error-free. The BitTorrent files for Ubuntu ISO can be found at this alternate downloads page. Use your favorite Torrent client to download Ubuntu and install it.

Tried with: Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
