    False positive?
    Probably, Got Same result here - The netinst.iso downloads fine

    1) systemd is monolithic
    2) Btrfs corrupts your data
    3) There are no Linux viruses
    4) 32bit is just as efficient as 64bit (x86) if you don't need the extra memory
    5) Debian is outdated
    6) Programs that are not updated will rot and get worse over time
    7) old GUI designs are inefficient and needs to be replaced every second year
    8) XFS never truncates your files
    9) linux filesystems don't need defragmentation
    10) some filesystems never fail so you don't need backups
    11) you definitively don't need backups if you use mdraid
    12) GNOME is useful
    13) The kernel never crashes
    14) only xterm -bg black -fg green has the power of starting a decent thermonuclear war
    You forgot: 15) No need to reboot after updates

    You obviously are a disciple of myth#5, good luck as a missionary for that... Oh and just in case you ever should be a bit curious if there is any substance to what you so uncritically probably believe in I suggest you check out the following URL:

    Now if only they would tick a few boxes in the kernel to make it low latency
