Yeah well if I ever download it, I will wait until more people have finished downloading and the ratio gets a bit better

Just be patient with the torrents, once it hits Digg/Slashdot/Reddit, and people finish and start seeding, it'll pick up really fast.

I just fired up the torrents before leaving home this morning. :plane:

Why would you download dvd through torrent when the iso dvd is already up here?

http://download.open...n/11.0/iso/dvd/

Infact, cd isos are up through http as well

You could download it directly and then check it with bittorrent.
I already have it. The torrents were leaked several days ago, and they were very fast then.

Just installed, had to use res =1680x1050 at boot but other than that the install went very smoothly.

This release is pretty much as i expected it to be, simply amazing, speed? hell yeah! this makes ubuntu look like bloated version of vista put it that way ;)

One thing i'm VERY dissapointed it with is the nvidia driver install, openSuse is the only distro i know of now which doesnt have a one click install...

Got presented with X not working upon reboot of installing...

Yep, doesnt work, you get stuck without X on reboot.

This was a bug in the beta where you had to compile the driver yourself...but it was supposed to be fixed...

Downloading the x64 DVD, I'll install when I get back from work. I'm pretty excited about this release, I just hope the driver installation is easy.
