Legal torrent collection

Recommended Posts

Collection of legal torrent sites, resp. links to sites with collections. :D

Feel free to post missing or important sites or links with a short description, but take care they are really free and legal (and not copyright protected, otherwise the post will be deleted and you can get banned too).

For individual sites have a look on the "Misc Links" at the end of this post too.

Linux

Slackware (utorrent's testtorrent) one of the many Linux distributions, is great to test since it is hosted on dedicated servers. It will max out your internet connection within a few minutes (10-15 on average).

Knoppix is a bootable Live system on CD or DVD, consisting of a representative collection of GNU/Linux software, automatic hardware detection, and support for many graphics cards, sound cards, SCSI and USB devices and other peripherals. KNOPPIX can be used as a productive Linux system for the desktop, educational CD, rescue system, or adapted and used as a platform for commercial software product demos. It is not necessary to install anything on a hard disk. Due to on-the-fly decompression, the CD can have up to 2 GB of executable software installed on it (over 8GB on the DVD "Maxi" edition).

Ubuntu is a community developed, Linux-based operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. It contains all the applications you need - a web browser, presentation, document and spreadsheet software, instant messaging and much more.

The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made common cause to create a free operating system. This operating system that we have created is called Debian GNU/Linux, or simply Debian for short.

Office

Open Office (utorrent's testtorrent) is a free, open-source, multi-platform, multi-language office suite. Like Slackware, it will max your connection very quickly, not to mention being a useful application to have around.

This blog dedicated to vintage / Public Domain entertainment and recorded history. It also focuses on the developments for Creative Commons and Open Source Media. The blog centers around fans of nostalgia and culture. Visitors can get quick insights to various people, films and events of the past.

In addition, I deliver a free video and audio podcasts via itunes. The podcast is also dedicated to all Public Domain / Vintage Television AND recorded history. Every Sunday is a new download. It will randomly consists of a full-length movie from any genre (horror, sci-fi, etc.), historic speeches, music, rare clips, vintage commercials, classic service announcements, documentaries, and rare audio recordings.

It is my goal to build an archival collection of the most DIVERSE Public Domain movies, Creative Commons, Open Source film, and historical works in one podcast feed for itunes~ipod media. This has become a huge hobby of mine and it gives me great pleasure, to research and share these extremely rare and historic memories with other fans of vintage history!
