Yesterday I downloaded the minimal USB. I am in USA, not Europe or Asia,
so I did not choose an alternative mirror for the download. Average speed
was modem circa 1990 around 56 Kb/s. It took almost 3 hours. Okay, if
that is how it is now.
The problem is, out of curiousity, I compressed the downloaded minimal USB
file 25% using Zip.
Similar savings result for the 2 GiB Live USB down to 1.6 GiB.
It would be great if OI stopped releasing separate USB images from now on
anyhow. I recall that Toomas in April was building a hybrid ISO for USB.
Can we just go forward with that solution, compressed of course?
Thanks for your work.
