Bah, I've been downloading this for like 3 hours and its still only at 65%.

I still want to know when I can get a key. I hope they expand the CPP soon, very soon, as in when I get a DVD I can burn it on.

sweet. I'm excited or this. Would it be a bad idea if i put this on an old 20gb HDD?

EDIT: nevermind. i forgot that vista takes up 15gb on the computer. Would it be a bad idea to make a partition for it? could i delete the partition in the future?

Windows ReadyBoost

Adding system memory (RAM) is often the best way to improve your PC's performance. More memory means applications can run without needing to access the hard drive. However, upgrading memory is not always easy. You need to know what type of memory you need, purchase the memory, and open your computer to install the memory¬ówhich sometimes can invalidate your support agreement. Also, some machines have limited memory expansion capabilities, preventing you from adding RAM even if you are willing to do so.

Windows Vista introduces a new concept in adding memory to a system. Windows ReadyBoost lets users use a removable flash memory device, such as a USB thumb drive, to improve system performance without opening the box. Windows ReadyBoost can improve system performance because it can retrieve data kept on the flash memory more quickly than it can retrieve data kept on the hard disk, decreasing the time you need to wait for your PC to respond. Combined with SuperFetch technology, this can help drive impressive improvements in system responsiveness.

Windows ReadyBoost technology is reliable and provides protection of the data stored on your device. You can remove the memory device at any time without any loss of data or negative impact to the system; however, if you remove the device, your performance returns to the level you experienced without the device. Additionally, data on the removable memory device is encrypted to help prevent inappropriate access to data when the device is removed.


so... does that mean that I will see an improvement if I plug in my 2Gb Jump Drive?

and if so, how much of an improvement should I expect?

Apparently, Microsoft today ran out of product keys for Release Candidate 1 version of its upcoming Windows Vista operating system.

The following message was posted on Windows Vista's Connect website:

"9-5-06 - We are currently out of additional keys for package 5342 and Up Ultimate. We will have more keys available for download within 72 hours. Please do NOT send mail to MCHelp or LHBeta regarding this issue."

That makes me a sad panda.
Oh well, I won't even be able to burn a DVD for a while anyway.

They are not giving out keys yet. If you were int he Beta 2 you will get a email with your key. If you are signing up for the first time now you will have to wait as they want all the people who signed up EARLY to get it first before they give keys out to everyone else.
