Fedora Core Fedora 8 Release Candidate 3 has been released. "Fedora 8 Release Candidate 3 has been released on the torrent site. Both DVD and Live images have been provided. Unless something goes terribly wrong, these will be the same bits (modulo gpg signed SHA1SUM files) that will go to the mirrors for the final Fedora 8 release." Update: There is an interview up about CodecBuddy's inclusion in Fedora 8 with the two developers behind this feature.

Why are torrents an issue for you? There are myriad of Bittorrent clients available on the Internet for any computing platform. These reange from fast and extremely simple (Transmission) to full-featured (Azureus.) Give Bittorrent a whirl. Cheers!

Yes, it is slower, at least for me.

torrents are an issue for me too. I have Comcast broadband and I have been downloading the DVD for over 12 hours. bittorent-curses says I have 5.5 hours left! The problem with torrents is if not enough users have seeds available the download speed is very slow. I try to do my part and let bittorent upload from my torrent for several days after a release. Comcast is throttling uploads and probably limiting download speed of torrents too. I think there was some legal action against them recently.

I use Optus in Australia which counts uploads as well as downloads against my usage. So I don't use bitorrents as I would reach my cap quicker that way. I get shaped to 64Kb/s after 2000MB. And yes they did this becuase so many people are using P2P systems which actually costs them.

2000 MB per day? Per month?

what about those of us who have isp's that rate limit torrents, or work for comapanies who only allow http access?

and frankly, ftp would be way faster.
