It’s far easier to just download an image than to try to figure out how to download via bittorrent.  The downloads are small enough that I can wait for them to download.  I spent much more time finding a non-malware bittorrent client for Windows where I’m creating a ISO USB for a Debian based Zoom kiosk type install.  You should make download by bit torrent an option not a requirement.  Obviously this bothered me enough to send this email.

<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments

      and ideas you had during the initial install.>
