    I just ordered the DVD pack. Even though BT upgraded me at home to 8MB/s, they cap you. Sooooo...DVD was the best option. Probably get it around January...

    Same here, I'm on Wanadoo 1Mbps (I live in the sticks - was 512k until about 2 months ago!) and that's capped a 2Gb a month, so as well as taking about 13-14hrs, it would have used 2 months download allowance too!

    Hope it doesn't take too long to come - been wanting to try Vista right from the first beta!

    I got the servers busy message all day yesterday but managed to start downloading it using the propriety download manager at about 10:30 PM.

    Will try it over the weekend.

    Re: Vista beta open to all and sundry

    I've managed to get it downloading from the MS site this morning.

    Got the usual too busy error, hit refresh half a dozen times and it then worked fine.

    Is this link any use?
