Ok, VS.NET 2005 Beta 2 is done, now where's the sanctioned torrent?
Ok, so VS.NET 2005 Beta 2 is done. And it'll be released next week. (Why not now so we can use all that bandwidth to download over the weekend. <grin>)
But the real question is where is the more efficient downloading scheme for MSDN? This thing will be 3+ GBs, and if it's anything like last time, everybody and his brother will be hitting the MSDN site, so it'll take 3 or 4 days to get it all. Wouldn't it be nice if they used BitTorrent, much like RedHat does with Fedora (http://torrent.dulug.duke.edu/) Add security to the whole thing so no unlicensed user can get it, and let it a good proven method for downloading large files go to work.
That said, I still can't wait to get in the MSDN queue, even if I do have to fuss with it. <grin>
