Although the ISO images of Ubuntu can be downloaded directly from the official site of the distribution, it is recommended to download it better using the BitTorrent protocol in order not to saturate the servers.
the download using the BitTorrent protocol it is beneficial for both the distribution and the users as they get higher download speed rates as they do not have to download the image from the official server, Which is usually saturated in the days after the release of new versions. In this post we will download Ubuntu 12.04.1 using Deluge, a cross-platform client with a simple and user-friendly interface.
The first is to go to the Ubuntu downloads, We are going to download the Desktop version. Once on the page, scroll to the end of it, to the “Alternative options” section, and click on the link that says “Take a look at a full list of our previous versions and alternative downloads.” This will take us to the alternative downloads. We move again to the “BitTorrent” section. Here are the files .torrent for various architectures and versions (Desktop, Server and Alternate).
We select the correct option and save the file.
Now we open Deluge and go to menu File → Add.
In the window that opens we click on the option file.
We navigate to the archive torrent which we download and select.
