I haven't used Ubuntu for a few years so I thought I'd give it a try once more. I donated and then tried to download only to have it keep trying to connect - never allowing me to actually get the program. I even hit the "download now" button to no avail. Please advise.

If you can't get it via http you can get it via ftp or bittorrent... – Alex Apr 19 '13 at 4:18

Ubuntu doesn't need donation to get downloaed.

Are you sure you are not downloading from any scam site? Also Ubuntu site doesn't have and Download button. It says Get ubuntu 12.10 or Get ubuntu 12.04

You can download from here -

If you want to get 13.04 beta (which is going to release this month)
