How comes the Debian image is distributed via HTTP and Torrent, but nobody seems to have considered to make it available via eMule?

Is eMule not as commonly used in the UK as it is in Germany?

Anyway, I placed the debian6-17-02-2012.zip file in my eMule uploading folder and will keep seeding it over next few days. So if anyone wants to use that access, you're welcome. Just search for "debian6".

(Oh, one note: I'm not connected to any server, so you have to search via Kad.)

Personally, I haven't heard eMule in YEARS. I didn't know it was popular anywhere.

Anyway, it's always good to have another distrobution method!

Same for me.. The only people I know who use Emule are computer-retarded (mother-in-law.. you know what I'm sayin!)

But this is such a nice thought from you, despite I don't think anyone from the community is still using the mule!

This a very community driven project, which is to say the only reason it wasn't on eMule is because no one had stepped up and put it on there

The only time I see eMule installed on a computer is when its full of viruses and junk with the owner wanting me to clean/fix it for them.

Its nice that your thinking outside the box though, every little helps

You are mistaken.

The eDonkey-network (emule is just one of it's many clients) is still very much alive with hundreds of millions of online-clients at any given time and imho the best place for the more rare items due to the networks search ability while bittorrent relies on external sites providing links to (mainly popular) files. If you want a popular file fast, got to bittorrent. If you need a less popular file and aren't in a hurry, got to eDonkey.

^this. Generally linux distros are distributed using BT. ED2K is considered a bit too "warezy" for most. If you do put it up on ED2K then make sure you give people the hash link rather than a search term, as people tend to hijack popular filenames for malware.
