Default Vista Released to Public!

http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=467859

Enjoy!

The links in the first post are now live, and I've begun the massive 4GB download on my puny 256k cable line. Looks like it's going to be a few days until I'm done.

Thanks! I guess I'll start my download now.

Edit: Hmm, didn't think of that. I started the 32-bit one but maybe I should be going for the 64-bit one.

I would go with x32, x64 really doesn't give you such a great boost since most apps aren't written for 64bit support anyways. Also when a 64bit os runs 32bit code it is actually slower, and the fact that there are numerous issues with the 64bit version right now.

I'm dling the 64-bit version for the heck of it.

Hopefully it will be better than the xp-64 build

If it conks out, I'll just go with the 32-bit version. It's only bout a 1-2hr dl afterall.

850 kbps goodness



HOLY CRAP, I love this dl-manager. 1.3 Mbps now

And, just as an addendum, get your product licence here:

https://www.microsoft.com/betaexperi...ountryCode=CDN

I'm downloading the x64. I hope it'll work.

I get a sorry, unable to process your request when trying that link (license). Edit: Do you have to have it installed before doing that?
