[util] Download Express
Download Express goes on every computer I build. It's a download manager, similar to GetRight, but cheaper. As in free.
Download managers rock - you can resume a broken downloads, and get insane download speeds. With my cable modem, I'm usually in the mid-300K's with this. When I don't use it, I'm often at half that speed. Too bad MDSN downloads go through the Visual Studio 2005 CTP release would have come down a lot faster...
Anyhow, I've been using Download Express for several months and I highly recommend it.
