A download trouble! :-(
Hi there, friends! Greetings from Ukraine!
I'm writing to inform you that downloading your latest distribution (5.6) may become a terrible trouble for smb from my country.
Why so?
1. The first mirror (USA) has an average download speed of 40 KB/s. At that speed it'll take ages to download (not ages, but 4 hours...)
2. The second mirror (mega) wants me to install a desktop client for MEGA. I certainly do not want to do this.
3. The third mirror has a good speed, but of my 13 attempts to download the distribution all 13 failed (somewhere in the middle the connection is broken each time, but it is not possible to resume the dwnld).
Maybe you should also include torrents? Unfortunately, the latest version with t-file is 5.0.
Thank u for ur attention and for ur great work!
Best wishes!

The mega mirror should work without you installing any desktop client if you use a modern browser.
We added this specifically as the USA mirror is slow for Europe.
The third mirror is a cdn network and it takes some time to sync between all mirrors.
As for torrent this needs seeders. If enough people downloaded and are willing to seed the ISO it will be no problem.
