Xcode on .torrent (via BoingBoing)


Boing Boing: Xcode .torrent

BoingBoing just posted a link to a .torrent download of Xcode, stating Apple's distribution network is "slow and poky".

Now i'll have to ask: How is Akamai slow and poky? And if the download is not distributed via Akamai, but only via the ADC site, aren't you violating the NDA you signed to get access to the ADC site to pull XCode and put it on .torrent?

Just curious.

Dirk,

in case you selected the European Server, that is really slow. Try selecting one of the 2 US-Servers, they were always pretty fast for me.

I'm inclined to agree. I'm downloading XCode now (372Mb) over a 2Mb ADSL connection and my d/l rate is maxing at 3.6Kbps. At this rate I'll be waiting for days! SLOW AND POKY.

Boy, what you really need is not XCode - you need to get a life!

MAN.... SHUT UP.... I've been busy for more then 3 days downloading Xcode from ADC and at 308,8Mb It wouldn't go any further.. and because of the inlog thing apple has going on trough the FTP site wich you only can enter with your trough a temp. account,.... you can't resume downloading after it breaks down..... so please...... SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT BULLSHIT LIKE THAT OKAY...
