          ^^^^No luck here either. I am just going to wait for now. I already have my beta key.

              Is all of your software gonna be compatible? And what happens when Vista comes out? Will your beta version still work, or will you be required to buy it?

                OK, this is going to annoy me, I really want to try this out....hmm any ideas ? Since its probably only burnable in dvd format, anyway to convert to cd's, I know I could break the iso up, but wouldn't be able to install...

                  I have absolutely no idea... but, you could get a friend who has a dvd-rw drive to do it for you; put the file onto an mp3 player, then take it to a college or public library that has computer's w/ dvd-rw drives; or you could spend 60 bucks and get an external one.

                    Probably not. They have been having particular issues with drivers (no surprise there).

                    And what happens when Vista comes out? Will your beta version still work, or will you be required to buy it?
                    When the Beta runs its course, you will be required to purchase one of the 7 or so different versions.

                      I'm tempted to try it out but I need to be sure Battlefield 2 will run on it. I've been wanting to take advantage of the x64 part of my processor.

                        ^^^^It is somewhat alright for day to day use. (Internet and such) But gaming preformance is slightly less then XP/alot worse at times depending on the game in question.

                        I personally won't except to game on it/upgrade my current XP install until beta is released by RC. (Release Candidate)

                        Beta expires in a year.

                          I WAS going to put it on a partition on my HDD but the download died after about 4 GB. I'll probably try again sometime after the initial fervor has subsided but it was disheartening to say the least.

                            I think I am just gonna bite the bullet and pay the 6 dollars.

                            Atleast I will get it sooner and in addition I also get a DVD copy of RC1 when it is released.

                            Edit: Just ordered it. Now that I think about it ome more this should be free really. I am helping "them" out after all.
