    No. As a stand alone .exe, not as an entire Vista package.

    Damm. Sorry everyone. It is only on TechNet+. It cached my details when I'd checked.

    I don't think so with what you get - I have Technet + and with that you get 3 free support calls to MS a year [ never had to use them ] plus access to a ton of excellent newsgroups and also software by the case load. All OS's, and other software MS have knocked up - [ good and bad !! ]
    I am lucky in that I get the school to pay for mine, but even if they didn't I would fork out of it myself.

    The free support calls can be life savers. They pulled my dead Exchange server back from the grave remotely. It took the lass from Microsoft 7 hours almost non-stop to do it. Very good value for money IMHO.

    Hope XP SP3 arrives soon

    I like Microsoft's naming policy - Windows6.0-KB936330-X86-wave0.exe

    Wave0? Are they planning more waves in case users experience major problems?

    English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish it appears. I wonder what the reason(s) were behind integrating multiple languages in one package? Be interesting to see if they do this with XP SP3 as well.
