Windows Vista: order the DVD

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 10-Jun-2006 21:12

From The Hive, a Microsoft-sponsored forum for website owner and community leaders:

Due the HUGE number of people who are trying to download the Vista beta, Microsoft is now highly recommending that you order the DVD. 

It looks like Vista has generated the most download requests for one file in history.  This is a limited beta, so if that limit is reached before you get the download and key, you might not get it.

1) We are hitting a legitimate threshold as to how fast we can serve up the bits without affecting the rest of the Net.
2)  People should consider ordering the DVD. While we are excited to see the huge demand, this is more about being good citizens and helping users who are waiting know they can order the DVD.



You can register, order the DVD or download Microsoft Windows Vista Beta 2 here.
