    Another good place to find out information on the latest Linux releases, although not a tracker is www.distrowatch.com .This site gives alot of information about each individual distro and includes screenshots, although if you want to check out a stunning distro take a look at eAR OS www.earos.dk .

    I wouldn't think there would be a tracker dedicated to Linux software, since most of it is free as far as I know. Most trackers don't distribute free things, as it's pointless. As for Linux e-learning, well I'm sure some e-learning trackers are bound to have something for that.

    The original point of the BT protocol was to share data, as a file distribution system bt is very efficient because it spreads the data evenly through the swarm. There are over 100 distributions listed on linuxtracker not to mention other software or older versions of some distro's, and many distro makers now use linuxtracker as one of their primary ways of distributing the software for the simple reason that using a tracker is far better than investing in the hosting to provide 1,000's of possible connections if a distro becomes popular. Some Linux distro's are almost viral in their popularity within the community and a bt tracker is one of the most efficient and cost effective way of sharing the software, without the huge cost of datacenter and bandwidth costs. By releasing Linux distro's through a bt tracker (and of course via ftp, many distro's being mirrored on ftp servers all over the world), there is a massive cost saving in what are sometimes one and two man operations, ie Kanotix, SimplyMEPIS and Sabayon all have only one major software developer.
