  • NICE heads up (much appreciated).
    Microsoft has partnered with Akamai Technologies
    Is the download throttled? or possibly spread amongst connections?
    Im currently getting 135kb/sec on a direct  connection rated as up to 8Mbs/sec
  • "to the first 100,000"

    the first 100k clickers, or full downloads?

    So if i pause my download, can i finish 2morrow.?

    just let it run i guess..
  • This build is really awesome. It's a huge step up from Beta 2 (in performance, fit and finish).
  • I keep getting a connection error.  Also, I can not use the direct link.  Anyone else able to use these?
  • Do you know if we'll be able to upgrade our Beta 2 version of Windows Vista to this Pre RC1? After using the beta for 2 months on my PC, there's just so much stuff in there. I wouldn't want to have to do a clean install.

    Thank you for your interest in Windows Vista.

    We are currently experiencing a high level of demand and cannot process your request at this time.

    Please check back later for availability. We apologize for any inconvenience.
  • last I heard, the plan was to be able to upgrade from Beta2, to RC1. But, to be honest, I havent tried this and dont know the answer 100%
