I have been using Linux Mint 7 live CD for a couple of weeks and I'm very impressed.
I am fairly new to Linux and I'm still trying out various distros, only as live CD, I haven't installed anything yet.
I have used a couple of KDE distros and liked the KDE but had other troubles with them, so I am keen to try Mint 7 KDE.
However when I go to the download mirrors listed for Linux mint 7 KDE, the two listed mirrors for Australia don't have the KDE version.
I have tried several of the overseas mirrors but I get incredibly slow download speeds, and they just get slower and slower. After 5 minutes downloading I'm getting indications that the download will take 10 days plus. I have satellite broadband which can be a problem at times but I have downloaded about a dozen other distros without this problem. I have tried it on a windows computer using Download Accelerator; on my desktop using Linux Mint 7 Gnome edition and Firefox; and on an old laptop using Puppy Linux and Axel download accelerator. No improvements.
Is it possible to have it listed on the Australian download mirrors? Preferably Optus, I get good connect speeds from there.
