    You sure we can download 3.6 Gb with 256Kbps connection in 12 to 15 hours. I think 32kbps is max for 256
    Kbps . So technically it should take atleast 36 hours somewhere.
    Correct me if i'm wrong....! Coz i got 256 conection and 28to32 kbps is what i get ....so it takes 36 hours ...

    Already downloaded it a long time back .. on my GPRS conn. @ avg. ~28 KBps .. those damm Microsoft servers were awesome .. took just over 38 hrs.

    Also .. RC1 is an awesome build ... although there has been rumours about even a newer build .. this is indeed one of best beta releases till date. ...

    And btw .. used Flashget here too ..
