Windows Microsoft released Vista Beta 2 for public consumption. It does not require a Key but will expire on June 1 2007. You can download the 3GB ISOs (or from here) for 32bit and 64bit architectures.

Another good reason to use BT is its block checksums. Does everyone really expect to get a clean download of 3-4 GB? With BT, it'll detect that bad block and re-download just that *one* block, not the whole file.

They could at least provide md5sum, that you can test if you have whole file with all chunks. On iso-hunt there is some file similary named and the dovnload is much faster.

P.S.: I think it is OK to say that because beta is free to download.
