Download VirtualBox disk images?


Does anyone know if there are any sites/torrents of the .vdi files that are used by virtualbox? I'm having some trouble installing Debian in virtualbox, and wondered if it was possible to just download a pre-installed one.

I hope that this isn't treading on any toes from a legality point of view... And if there is a reason there aren't any, please point it out to me!

Ah, nice one

I'm downloading it now.

So there's no other more publicly available ones? It seems to me that someone wishing to try Linux, could download one of these, install the windows version of VirtualBox, and then use Linux without even having to install it or turn their computer off. Maybe I'll make a torrent of one...

Incidentally, it didn't ask me for a password...
