Torrent link?

Post by Chompjil »

Ok, so on the downloads should we have a torrent for the .iso?
I DO have a magnet link, but I think we need an official ReactOS torrent link...

Torrents are generally used to save costs on upload bandwidth. Since the project doesn't directly host the downloads, we don't have costs to save.

All Torrent clients including the BitTorrent's support magnet links.
-uses Ubuntu+GNOME 3 GNU/Linux
-likes Free (as in freedom) and Open Source Detergents
-favors open source of Windows 10 under GPL2

What I meant really is that we need an "Offical" Torrent/magnet link and not one made by me :P

What for? Its slow and useless if we have enough traffic.
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Currently it is not really needed, since download links are much faster and easier to download for some users, i sometimes use torrents but i think current download method is ok. :)

I think is not bad idea, but not for replace direct download of course. Sharing philosoficaly sounds to "nicefriendlycompatible" whit open source, isn't?. Some GNULinux distros have both methods on their sites. Don't forget also KAD (e-Mule, etc...).
