It sure does, Charlie. Makes life easy. Anybody and everybody can use that without breaking into a sweat.
Maybe a point of interest:
When there was the Mint hack, the criminals were devious enough (as memory serves) to change the checksum that was listed. It was pretty devious.
It may appear that I'm throwing stones at Mint, but that's not really the case. I am pretty darned sure they learned their lesson AND I trust them enough to have Mint installed on one of my devices - one that I use quite frequently.
I'm not throwing stones, I'm reminding folks to use an abundance of caution. That caution applies *everywhere*.
For example, there's a lubuntu.net that was once the authority and download source. It no longer is, for reasons. It's now lubuntu.me and has been for a while. I can't get into the details (and only know some of the details as it is above my pay grade) but I believe there's a resolution in the works. Until then, even the newest of newbies needs to exercise an abundance of caution.
Always, always verify the checksum.
If you can torrent it, that checks the checksum automatically. So too will tools like rsync.
