how to get free Ubuntu OS? I want to try the Salamander Version

I'm here in the Philippines. I have my personal computer but my internet is so slow that's why I can't download the file.

Any Helps are highly appreciated. Thank you.

if you can't able to download,then only option is to buy ubuntu cd from stores. – Avinash Raj Dec 6 '13 at 8:32

You can try downloading using a download manager (like DownloadThemAll extension for Firefox) or using a torrent. It may take days on a slow connection but you'll get the big file in the end. – To Do Dec 6 '13 at 9:22
If you have limited bandwidth, it is probably better to use the long-term-support version (12.04, or 14.04 next year), which generally requires fewer updates. Short term releases like 13.10 are only supported for 9 months (vs 5 years for LTS) and therefore come with the implicit assumption you have enough bandwidth for a system upgrade (1GB or more) each time a new release is made. – chronitis Dec 6 '13 at 9:37

you can buy cd's from the Ubuntu store, but they stopped to distribute free Cd's

you can also look at the LoCo team of the Philippines and ask them whether they can give or sell you a installation Disc.

you could also try to download the ISO, with a unstable or slow connection I would advice to take a look at the torrent downloads. that way the download will resume if your connection drops.

edit: I did not realize you asked for 13.10 specifically, I think there are no physical discs for non- long term support releases.
