    I just got an email from my ISP saying that I am at 83 % of my bandwidth allowance, if I go over it is $10.00 per 50gb. I think this is insane. Especially since I cannot change to another Cable company as the company I use has a lock on where I live. It is a monopoly. No more down loading builds for me.

    Looks like MS has not taken into account cases like that. For some, even regular updates may be burden to bandwidth and/or DL limits.

    Hmmm, 5GBs for $1.00 or 10 additional Build downloads a month? I think I could live with that. Actually a build is less than 5GB so maybe get another one or two a month. I would wait until the next billing cycle to assure starting with a clean slate. Most of the Linux LiveDVD .iso are less than 3GB, same as small as 750MB and a few even smaller. But then my Windows calculator may be malfunctioning.

    I could download the iso and burn to dvd and send it to you at no cost if you really wanted it ,

    I have a no limit cable connection, first time any speed test showed it as being this fast, bit of a difference between the 2 tests
