Vista RTM on Connect

Recommended Posts

reactionary007    13

I logged on to connect and a message popped up saying they'd like to offer me a version of Vista - either Business or Ultimate RTM and that I could download it immediately and then I would receive a key within 1 week via email! Looks like beta testers get an lisence to RTM for participation. Go out and check it out! downloading it now!

Oh my! :D Microsoft did like my several hundred Bug Reports after all it seems. Downloading the RTM (both x86 and x64) as fast as my DSL can handle it. Ultimate!!! :punk:

Downloading from Connect!!! Yeah, great gift from Microsoft!! We wont get a boxed copy but... I don't care, even if the box look sexy! :)

I selected the Ultimate! Downloading x86 and x64 release at 600-700 KB/sec... Lots of traffic on Connect, I score better than that when it's less loaded!

My only problem now is that having just gone back to XP today due to monitor resolution issues in RC2 with a new graphics card - I can't get the damned FTM to install! LOL!

.... :( I wasn't in the beta testing team

If one of you is, and offered the d/l, but doesn't want to use Vista, can you offer it to me? ^^

(I heard not everyone wants to use Vista over XP)

So has anybody heard that this is just going to people who submitted a certain amount of bugs or anything?

Agreed, don't despair. I checked right away when I saw someone post that they had got it off connect. It wasn't there. I just checked back recently and the survey was there :woot:D

Downloading @700kb/s :D

Wow, a nice surprise for sure. I read the news on the Neowin front page, checked Connect on a whim - and there it was. Thank you, Microsoft!
