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."

"So for "them" it is impossible to download files >= 500 MB via HTTP


That makes me sad. I think I'd cut my wrists if my provider would be so crappy.
"

I've used "rural broadband" WiMAX ISPs where I wouldn't even think of trying to download a 500MB file with a browser. That said, I've used wget to transfer multi-GB files over those same connections (wget -c --timeout=10 --tries=100 http://somedomain.com/somefile.blah) & I find that works much more reliably.
