One of the major services that offers is the ability for users to download the Open Source software which has been released by the project through our File Release System (FRS). To serve these files to the user, maintains a geographically-distributed network of mirror servers, which receive copies of the files and dispense them to users. Since mirror servers are located throughout the world, users can pick a server which is physically close to them and receive great transfer speeds.

Selecting a mirror

There are times where network performance between two physically-close locations is poor. If you encounter slow downloads from a mirror, simply use the "try a different mirror" link to pick an alternate mirror.

If you encounter trouble downloading, please ensure you have turned off any ad blockers and download managers that may be interfering with the download process.
