Downloading Vista Beta 2 and Office Beta 2

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 24-May-2006 11:34

After the Windows Vista Beta 2 announcement, I am downloading the Microsoft Windows Vista Beta 2 from MSDN. I have already finished downloading the 2007 Microsoft Office System Beta 2, but it looks like the Windows Vista download is still going to take another 5 hours to complete (downloaded 1GB so far).

At this pace it is going to be fully downloaded by 4pm (NZ time), and I could possibly burn the ISO image to a DVD and do a fresh install on my Tablet PC as I did with previous builds.

Or not, seeing that tomorrow morning I have to show up early in the airport for my flight to Singapore, where I am attending the Microsoft Windows Vista Lab 2. I don't want to arrive there with a dead Tablet PC, if anything goes wrong...

I will wait... Work first, then when I am back I will have time to install both beta.
