Gentoo GNU/Linux is good, atleast for me!
Regarding downloads, regarding wget, probably "Accept-Range" header in
HTTP has the correct effect, and the mechanism probably sticks into place.
I havent tested wget on downloading huge files, my network seems to cope
ok when downloading huge files, so did not have a chance of testing wget
downloaded file's checksum integrity :-)

Once I used DAP (Download Accelerator Plus for

was md5sum didn't match with that of original one.
Then I tried downloading the ISO with Opera's (in
Solaris) internal transfer manager, after some time.
Similarly the checksum didn't match.
People suggested me to use wget, which was SURE to
download the file correctly. How is this true?
Now I am able to access one linux system (after
studying nearly 3 years in my college), that is our CS
server. I am planning to download Gentoo-1.4 pentium4
optimized through wget. (Windows wget didn't worked)
Also has anyone been successful using Gentoo, as I am
considering to switch from Slackware after using it
for 3-4 months! I prefer a distro that doesn't comes
with lots of private bells n whistles (like Mdk,
Fedora, ..), as they are likely to have more bugs!
