How much will the cd cost? When will the final version be released? All MS downloads are slow from theiir site at the mo. If you are a bit worried id wait for the final release like i am going to do!! Then get my dad to download it at work on his BB.
As yet, Microsoft haven't finalised decisions about distribution methods, although one of them will be a download, and another will obviously be a CD. I've suggested to them that this is one instance when a magazine cover CD would make an ideal distribution method, but they haven't reacted to that yet.
I have a firm promise that Microsoft will let me know as soon as a final distribution plan is in place, and I'll report back when I hear from them.
I've been running this Service pack (in all its beta versions) for quite a long time now, and can confirm that it seems to be very stable.
I have been running it for about 2 weeks now and I am quite impressed. It isn't just a question of new security patches, it has an entirely different feel. The only two minor problems I have hit are) it won't recognise Avast AV, although it runs OK, and I put on ETrust AV as supplied by MS and no trouble. 2) I can't get to Zone Alarm settings through the control panel (New Setting ) but it is not a problem. Go ahead & give it a whirl, you can uninstall if you want.
