I thought this was delayed. Also i read it best to put on windows update and get it that way.

After SP2 installation.

Does anyone know that the slider control called 'MAXSPEED' in Internet Explorer actually does?

When you alter it's position it asks for a reboot but just returns to it's original position.

As a genral public release, it is.

The downloads provided are the network Install versions. Don't be put off by them though, as this means little mroe than a all in one inclusive package, so the installer doesn't have to keep contacting the MS site for smaller portions of files.

From what I have read its not quite.

Beta testers/pre release candidates can get it from today, however for general users using windows update it will not be available until the 16th.

Its not a good idea to download it from anywhere except the MS sites, who knows whats been done to it elsewhere.

Besides the windows subsystem refusing to install anything, because the signature tests fail?

You will note that one of the links I gave was for MS. MS releases it in stages first its RTM which is the links I have given. It does mean it is the full final release. It is then released toMSn and others. It does give a unistall option if you get stuck

If you have either Beta version of SP2 installed, when you go into the system option within Control Panel. It will say SP2 RC1 Version blah or SP2 RC2 Version blah.
When you have the final version, it will just say SP2. No version number will be listed.

the SP2 version thats out now as far as i know is for buisness's to test, and the testing sucks big time, lots of problems and i mean lots, including p2p wont work some games wont work, there are some new features that when they have been patched will be better than the current SP1, but for now i would'nt touch it with a barge pole. have a read of this for a full run down of the problems and some solutions. http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/-/1/hi/technology/3570636.stm

What do you really expect, this is microsoft after all. Besides you will probably need SP2 in order to get any future fixes, bug fixes etc.
