Thanks a bunch. I've started the torrent though it took me a little while to find, the page to download it is, IMO, somewhat counterintuitive.<br>Instead of downloading by clicking on the version you want you have to click on the torrent from a list of files at the bottom, which are written in very small text (7 or 8 pixels). Oh well, I was still able to find it. Thanks for your response, less than 10 mins =D
<br>I look forward to the penguin! ^_^<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 1/12/07, <b class="gmail_sendername">Chanchao</b> <<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a>> wrote:</span><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); margin: 0pt 0pt 0pt 0.8ex; padding-left: 1ex;">

<br><br>Yes, go to <a href="http://Ubuntu.com">Ubuntu.com</a> and then download and you will see the torrent<br>download mentioned as well.<br><br>> P.S. When I reply to an email i can't change the subject in gmail, any
