    Unbelievable how many do this (Bit Torrent ).And then they wonder why it creates a
    problem and Windows 7 is junk. Ignorance sometimes does not pay

    I don't get why people would do that when they can currently get it for
    FREE. It makes no damn sense.

    I don't think anyone downloads Ubuntu from Torrent. Perhaps, an idiot like
    you would do.

    Hi, it was not necessary to download via torrents anyway. If you do your
    homework properly, you get a chance to read about the specific file
    before you download it. The torrents are a valuable tool to download files
    not otherwise available.

  7. Sure they are a valuable tool if you don't mind viruses in your download

    The whole "all torrents have viruses" thing has been spread by the
    software makers to discourage people from downloading things with
    bittorrent, they used to say the same thing when P2P was huge. Yes, its
    true some do have viruses but for the most part, the files are fine.

  9. I can understand that you might not approve, but do you really think
    it makes "no damn sense"? Off-hand I can think of a few reasons why
    people might do it. They might not be MSDN subscribers, but not be
    willing to wait the few days until it's available for everyone. They
    might be MSDN subscribers but be unwilling to wait until the servers
    are back up. They might be unhappy with the speed of the download and
    find that bittorrent is a faster alternative etc. etc.

    Of course, anyone who downloads software from an untrusted souce
    without taking any precautions is foolish if they then treat it as if
    it were trusted - and if they did end up with a trojaned version,
    well, that's pretty dumb - running md5 against an iso isn't hard.

  10. It's a pretty good tool for downloading files which are otherwise
    available too.

  11. Bittorrent is P2P... and yes, I think the dangers of downloading files
    is overstated to suit particular agenda, but given the very widespread
    ignorance of security matters, it's not particularly out of order. If
    people refuse to learn about security then telling people not to use
    software unless it's come from a trusted source is a good rule of
    thumb.
    But not in this case - large numbers of people did download (and then
    seed) trojaned isos.

    I can see you have no Torrent experience. Please do not speak up when
    you don't know what the **** you're talking about. Course, if you were
    to do that, you'd never post.

    I see you have no torrent experience either and that's why you've just
    lamely tried to change to subject to your lies about me. Can you name
    one lie? NO, you can't.

    Translation: Frank can't come up with any lies. I can come up with many
    of yours, Frank, without having to resort to Google. You've just been
    soundly refuted so it's time for you to trot out your copy and paste of
    your usual lies, insults, profanity, animal sex and bluster again.

    As I just predicted: "You've just been soundly refuted so it's time for
    you to trot out your copy and paste of your usual lies, insults,
    profanity, animal sex and bluster again."
