Well, the subject title is what I'm looking for, a highly configurable download manager. I have 150 Mb downlink and have a slightly odd obsession that required me to download a lot... it's always free... it can get pretty messy... i get a lot of judgmental stares from people who happen to glance at my archive... my girlfriends dont get it... my mom wouldn't know what to do... but i love downloading various Linux distribution's ISO files
haha I tried to make that eyebrow raising let me know if i gotcha.
But yeah, I love grabbing the latest ISO's of several flavors of Linux distributions. Arch, Fedora and a plethora of it's spins, CentOS, OpenSUSE, Scientific Linux, Gentoo, Slackware, Mint, Debian, Pear, Chakra, Mandriva, DSL, and it doesn't even have to be Linux; I love my Unices too! FreeBSD, OpenBSD, DragonFly, FreeNAS, pfSense. Let's not forget Solaris!; OpenIndia, Illumos, OpenSolaris (R.I.P and EF YOU ORACLE), SmartOS, OmniOS. I can go on; you get the point- hell I probably lost some of you already to boredom. For what it's worth, I promise I don't download these to just be a dork. I've used every single one of these in a meaningful way be it learning, general usage, specific, or development.
Anyway, when I go on streak of grabbing the latest release I clog up my downlink.
I want a manager that I can easily add links to the files that will be downloaded (something completely built-in that would hook into the link i click in-browser would be amazing). I want the manager to let me choose how many active downloads at a time. Throttling options. Maybe priority options. More options the better!
If you use or used something please let me hear about it! Recommend your favorites, things you've tried, or anything that generally fits the bill!
