OpenSUSE Linux 11.1 => Break the 200TB Barrier!

by @ 10:48 am. Filed under SUSE releases

OpenSUSE 11.1 Release

The gauntlet has been cast at our feet, fans of Linux and OpenSUSE. Robin brought to my attention a post by Martin Lasarsch where he says, “Let’s try to break the 200TB mark this time.” Apparently, last time, we achieved 163 TB.

So bag the mirrors for the first day or so. Hit directly when you go to download OpenSUSE 11.1. Totally scratch what I said before, then, about using mirrors. Don’t use them. If we are going for a record, tell all your friends, and let’s GO FOR THE RECORD, for the love of all that is holy.

Seriously, let’s have some ideas on how we can legitimately do this! Get the word out! Blog about it! You might even digg this story, copy it and put it on your own blog, or send it out to your entire buddy list on every social networking site you have, or email it to everyone you have in your email address book.

I mean, not that we want to get carried away. We’re just trying to break a record is all.

    Do you know how the count? Total traffic? If my ISP doesn’t throttle me or not a lot of people are using the connection for the day (cable) I could contribute roughly 55Gigs in a 24 Hour window. If they only count your IP as one download for what you downloaded, then I would just download at work, home, etc.
