I am thinking of trying to get together some kind of society where people can share open software and what have you, does anyone think this is a good idea? I got thinking about it because I was wanting to download Slackware but the thought of downloading 4.7 gig is a little daunting on a connection this slow (also I can't make use of the official torrent). Maybe some kind of message board system where people say what iso's or dvd's etc. they have that they could share. Could also spread the open source message round campus. It's currently just an idea, but as I say, any thoughts?
(or does this already exist within a computer society?)
