Linux "Today I pushed out a new ISO of my Wayland Live CD project, which is named for my favorite celebrity. For this new Wayland CD, I wrote a new login manager with Bash and Zenity and Expect (and Script) that fully runs on a Wayland server (weston). Now X is no longer involved in the boot process, and X does not start, (unless you use an X application with xwayland), because I replaced LightDM with the new loginmanager."

1.7 GB and no torrent? Who's gonna download that? I'm certainly not. Files >= 500 MB should always have a torrent (even if there is only one web seed and no other seeder). Some people don't have a very fast internet connection. Some people's internet has regular connection drops. So for "them" it is impossible to download files >= 500 MB via HTTP.
