There are mirrors of CTAN (which includes TeX Live all over the world) – egreg Jun 22 '12 at 19:16

never download tex live from tug.org (it's a source not an archive). don't download tex live from dante or cambridge; we both have bandwidth allowance calculated to support mirroring only.

download tex live from


no other url.

Does it have the windows installer? (I can't find it at the moment on tug website. Btw - is it just me, or is tug's website the worst simplest website in the world? I mean it just has to provide 2 Download Links: Linux and Windows.) – drozzy Jun 23 '12 at 14:18

tug.org may be offline at the moment due to power management work at Aarhus University (where tug.org is hosted). Should be up again during the weekend
