Like me in Africa, takes me a lot of time to download and most of the time,
hang on in the middle because I have some internet connection hiccups or timeout due to bad bandwidth ...
If I'm lucky, I have to try 2 or 3 times in order to load all the files correctly.

I prefer to download the GToolkit64 image, much easier for me, because I can relaunch the dl if something fails.
Apparently the image works but there is a problem when you launch the image :

It would be great to have this image available directly on PharoLauncher.
Thank you.

It takes very long. Around +20 minutes for me (I am located in Chile, no idea whether this matters or not).
