I want to distribute a LiveCD of my Open Source project.

  • ~300MB ISO file.
  • No revenue, so no money.
  • Around 1000 downloads per month expected.

What is the best way to distribute it?


The best option is http://sourceforge.net/, Its free and used by many open source developers.

If you want a torrent tracker for an open licensed project, you could use http://www.clearbits.net/ - the same people that StackOverflow use for their data dumps.

Otherwise, as Imran points out, SourceForge will mirror it worldwide for you.

    clearbits.net costs money even for free software content, if I understood well? – Nicolas Raoul Jan 19 '11 at 6:36
  • Hmmm, upon further investigation, this may now be the case. Check before proceeding! – crb Sep 6 '11 at 12:31

Submit it as a Bittorrent file and post your .torrent file.

  • That would suppose to have a server to serve the content, at least at first, right? – Nicolas Raoul Jan 19 '11 at 6:38
