Just download a client(bittorrent for example) and then use google to find the torrent you want to download.

from msdn the downloads are going pretty quickly right now. I have the x86 iso pulled down already and working on getting the x64 now.

The MD5 matched the leaked one, its the same file. Why are you guys bothering with this. I got both off newsgroups at my cap of 23MB/Sec

I have both x86 and x64 installed :P

So I installed the 64-bit Beta on my laptop . . . and I must say that this is acting slower than the older HP laptop with 32-bit. Maybe I should install 32-bit instead? I'm only running 2GB so I dunno if I should run 64-bit at all on this laptop.

YES! the x64 isnt as snappy or as quick as the x86 I've found.

I've found just the opposite. The x64 version runs extremely well for me.

If I had a decent machine with 4GB+ RAM, then I would use x64 but oh well. I'm installing x86 now.

Is there a legit download available anywhere else other than msdn and technet? I highly doubt the beta would be on my msdn academic account.
