Strike three: Is Linux Mint out? November 17, 2006Posted by NAyK in Linux, Linux Mint, Other Distros, Working on Linux.
(latest update: I tried Linux Mint 2.1 and it’s working fine on my desktop. I got the .iso’s without problem. Install report is here)
Well… after four hours of downloading, the .iso of Linux Mint 2.0 has crashed again. I just closed the window and I’m hoping that Windows Explorer 7 does a better job in managing my download. I seem to remember that Windows tends to cache the download and if we download again, it will start from where we left off… I’m hoping that this is true.
Why the problem? My guess is that Linux Mint is hosted in a poor server with limited bandwidth and can’t take the load. But this is the third time I’ve been unable to get this distro to even download properly!
I guess, this is strike three. But I’m giving Linux Mint more time because I like the idea of an Ubuntu with all the bells and whistles needed. However, this kind of download service is just driving me crazy. A huge huge disappointment!
