I don’t know if you noticed but today is Tux Tuesday here at FindMySoft, the day when all the news we report focus on open source operating system Linux. We kicked off Tux Tuesday with the news that Linux Mint 9 “Isadora” Fluxbox has been released as a final, stable version. Linux Mint 9 Fluxbox is available in 32-bit as a liveCD here.

We continued with the news that uTorrent has released an early Alpha version of uTorrent Server for Linux has been rolled out. The full-featured uTorrent for Linux client is coming soon, explained BitTorrent (BitTorrent acquired uTorrent back in 2006). If you would like to download uTorrent Server for Linux Alpha, just click this link.
