Internet down? Thank Microsoft and the demand for Vista Beta 2!

Posted by gamerzworld on June 10, 2006

According to Microsoft has told the Windows Featured Communities that the demand for Windows Vista Beta 2 has been overwhelming.  It is, in fact, the largest downloaded software in history.
Currently, they are serving product keys out ten times faster then the downloads can be served.  In fact, they are pumping out bits as fast as they can – any faster and there would be a measurable impact on the internet.  In fact, I quote a Microsoft representive:

"So, we are literally saying that if we increased our bandwidth any further there's a possibilty of taking down the Internet – people might have problems with World Cup viewing, etc"

People who have recieved Vista Beta 2 product keys, but are unable to download, may need to wait a few days, up to one week.  Microsoft encoruages users who want to try out Windows Vista Beta 2 to order the DVD.  When they recieve the DVD in 1-4 weeks, install it, and activate it, they will be automattically guaranteed an RC1 upgrade.
