Re: [K12OSN] K12LTSP 4.2.0 officially released



Nice work!

I was wondering if there a is a Bit Torrent download for k12ltsp 4.2 ?  
I have used bit Torent to get other distributions from
http://www.tlm-project.org/
It seems to work well; altho i don't know if there much advantage over
ftp, other than slow overloaded servers during peak times. And its
cool to help others get Linux if you have extra bandwidth:-)

 
thanks,

Tim S.
