Ubuntu 18.10 "Cosmic Cuttlefish" just released yesterday 18 October 2018. I wrote the short welcome review here, and now this article lists all download links of Ubuntu and 7 Official Flavors including torrents. I include a brief how to download below as well just in case it's your first experience with Ubuntu. Last but not least, I list all MD5SUM values of them in the end so you can verify your downloads. Happy downloading, happy installing, and happy running with Ubuntu. Good luck!

How To Download

Here you have two ways to download: direct and BitTorrent. I strongly suggest you to use BitTorrent way instead to download Ubuntu (see each Torrent link below). It benefits everyone: it's truly faster (I could get 3MiB/s, ~5 minutes for one ISO), and it reduces community servers' loads very much (so it's a good social contribution).

Direct way:
  • Right-click the ISO link > Save link as > be sure it shows .iso file name with 1GB size or more > download it.

BitTorrent way:
  • Open the Torrent link with your favorite BitTorrent client program e.g. Transmission. It will download the actual .iso file. See torrenting guide for more details.

Checksum List

Here's a list of official MD5SUM checksums of all ISO images above. I separate it here to make it easier for you. Check your downloaded image file with command line: $ md5sum iso-image-file-name.iso and compare your result here (use Ctrl+F in your web browser).
