the ESD just for upgrades?? is that official?

coz then ill cancel the download.. i want to install it fresh from a CD.

I'm downloading both (the ESD download is fast as blazes...) - however, I'll be using the ESD strictly in VM-based upgrade testing for now.

I'm creating my first test VM as I type this (WDP->WCP).

The next two (7 Ultimate and 7 Home Premium) will follow after seeing what the first one does.

ISO links (with product key - yes, it needs one) are up above (thanks, ynot_m). No snailage in the ISO download either (even with he ESD download in parallel).

It was mentioned that these things need keys, yet Microsoft mentioned nothing about keys anywhere.

Doh, there they are.

I'm getting 3.3 - 4MB/sec..

The live coverage at Engadget and TheVerge is really showing off how they listened to the community. new gestures, new task management and polished visuals look excellent. can't wait for this bad boy to finish downloading

They contracted for extra - primarily with Team Akamai (http://www.akamai.com).

7:50 pm Organizing the Metro tiles seems way, way easier with a mouse.
