On the whole it was all quite successful -- the site stayed up throughout, and users got very fast and reliable downloads thanks to metalink. The torrents were originally very fast but the pace dropped down after the initial flood in. Metalinks went well throughout the day, so good stuff.
It all depends on how many downloads there were compared to last times. It could b that people run away from Novell, due to the deal, or instead became curious and downloaded even more.
It would be interesting to see the numbers compared to other versions if those are available. I understand that you can't put a total on it, but Novell could compare the number of people who 'registerd'. In perecntage compared with the real downloads, that should give a good indication.
Or just some webstats comparing the different versions in another way.
I suspect that the download is less, because e.g. /. still has not mentioned it and my submited story is still pending and I doubt that I am the only one.
