Windows Vista Beta 1 – It’s downloading……..slowly!

Posted by Chris Green on Wednesday July 27 @ 10:33 pm

OK, we are about 20 per cent into the download of the Windows Vista Beta 1 ISO file. It’s a DVD ISO, and weighs in at around 2.5GB, and I’ve downloaded just over 500MB thus far, at an average rate of 82KB/sec.

It is times like this that I consider moving up to Blueyonder’s 4Mb broadband service, but given that half the planet is probably trying to download this as well tonight, it probably wouldn’t make much difference, as I’m not even maxing out my current 2Mb line with this download.
