Just started donwloading Fedora 12 torrent.

Always wonder when I download a new distro why the peers list that the torrent 
client shows so few peers from India. (I use ktorrent which shows the country 
of a connected peer. May be other clients too show this.)

US tops the list of peers' countires followed by China, Russia when I observed 
just now.

Is it that, not too many in India download or it has anything to do with the 
bandwidths in India i.e. the torrent clients might be choosing peers with 
better speeds etc.

Mayuresh.
