    Yep the KMS key is on my licensing page has well. No sign of the keys on MSDN AA or the Final ISO I guess we will have to a few weeks. But my RC is still working grate so will keep me going until then.

    We have too
    Does this mean (not that i'm going to do it or suggesting anyone else does...) that if we were to 'acquire' the RTM version from another source that we could install it with this key now?

    I think for the Academic Alliance users you have to wait till your campus manager enables it for you or something, well thats what my teacher said.

    That's what I thought knowing that each campus has its on management for it, if so it'll be a wee while yet then. He was none to nippy at getting the RC up.

    How long does everyone think the MVLS servers will hold up under the load of half the internet downloading 7 on the day of realease? I think about 6 hours for enough people to start hitting the server unless they just provide a link to a torrent. Probably one that is already avalible

    In some ways I guess that's what MS are hoping for - overload. Means that half the world and his wife are wanting to get their hands on it.
