Ubuntu is composed of many software packages, the vast majority of which are distributed under a free software license. The only exceptions are some proprietary hardware drivers.The main license used is the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL) which, along with the GNU Lesser General Public License (GNU LGPL), explicitly declares that users are free to run, copy, distribute, study, change, develop and improve the software. On the other hand, there is also proprietary software available that can run on Ubuntu. Ubuntu focuses on usability, security and stability. The Ubiquity installer allows Ubuntu to be installed to the hard disk from within the Live CD environment, without the need for restarting the computer prior to installation. Ubuntu also emphasizes accessibility and internationalization to reach as many people as possible.

Who Uses Torrents to get Free Music/Video?

Saturday, January 25, 2014

According to an info-graphic published by BitRebels a year ago, movies like Avatar, Batman – the Dark Knight , Transformers, Star Trek or Inception were just 5 out of 10 most downloaded movies of all time using torrents. The average user age who downloads free music or videos using torrents is somewhere around 22 years old and strongly believes in online freedom.

70% of online users find that there’s nothing wrong with piracy.
If you start asking an experimented user what are his thoughts on piracy, he’ll probably tell you he respects the rights of someone else’s artwork but strongly believes the world should be free and information, in general, should be free, especially when it ends up online.

 

In the past few years, people have started using torrents more and more and that’s mainly because of their accessibility and super fast speeds. More recent studies have shown that music videos from artists like Jay-Z and Kanye West (“Watch the Throne”), LMFAO (“Party Rock Anthem”) and Adele (“21″, “Set fire to the rain”) were among most downloaded music on the web using torrents.

Download entire discographies.
People can now use torrents to get entire free music and video band discographies. This says something about the times we’re living in. No more tapes, not so much DVDs, just pure high quality audio and video files downloaded using torrents, ready to be uploaded into a person’s iPod or smartphone.

 

That’s how much we enjoy listening to music and watching movies and we clearly enjoy both of them a lot more than we used to, mainly because we’re all connected on some level, online.

 

Netflix helped by torrent sites.
There are now companies like Netflix have found themselves launching products a lot more closer to torrent sites. For example, Netflix recently launched its video streaming service in Netherlands and hopes to gather large user base and licensing for major tv shows that europeans and the rest of the world would watch.

 

Yet, it doesn’t have that information, it doesn’t know to what tv shows it should focus on getting streaming rights. And that’s where torrent sites from Netherlands come handy: following the number of video downloads using torrents, Netflix can get an idea of what the Internet users love watching, therefor helping Netflix make an informed decision when buying their next TV show rights.

 

In a near future, it’s more likely big corporations become a lot more friendlier to their users, giving them the ability to download nearly everything using torrents.
