Hi, all! One of my preferences is to promote the use of bit-torrents for distributing Linux distros. I'm a bit a of a distro-junkie, although my main workhorse OS is MEPIS Linux. 64 Studio is unique, and I think it needs to be more widely known. I see that the bit-torrent for 32-bit version of the 2.0 release at is not being seeded. It would be good if some of you who have the ISO on your HDD could DL the following torrent and help seed it. Since I am active at, I've started a torrent there. It is a popular site, and gives good exposure. Although it is based in North America, members come from all over the world. And downloads are open to non-members at no charge. HERE IS THE URL FOR THE DOWNLOAD PAGE: Currently, it is listed on the front page of . . . but that will change, of course, as other people upload other Distro torrents. When I co-ordinate torrents for MEPIS, I try to get community volunteers to keep at least 3 seeds for every torrent version we have going. People new to a Distro are impressed by community support expressed in a well-seeded torrent, but are turned off by one that lacks seeds. Of course! I may be "Captain Obvious" here, but if you can pitch in and help seed this torrent, it will obviously help promote 64 Studio! And that's good! thanks, SilverBear

I have it on for two days and nights now

After a few days, we have had moderately good participation in the torrent swarm for 64 Studio 2.0 for i386. Currently there are 10 people seeding the torrent, and 1 leech. A total of 30 people have DL'd the ISO. Thanks to all those who have helped seed --and who continue to participate.
