Wir haben uns zwar um zwei Mirrors bemüht, werden diese jedoch aus Traffic-Gründen sicherlich nicht ewig laufen lassen. Je nach Download-Aufkommen solltet ihr euch also beeilen, das File zu ziehen und zu Gunsten der Allgemeinheit einen Blick in eventuell vorhandene "Shared-Folders" altbekannter P2P-Tauschbörsen werfen.
