(Yep, that’s a 2.6 GB download boys and girls).

Guess it’s time to nuke-and-pave my notebook PC again this weekend. 

Let the ceremonial pegging of the download servers begin! 

As Gavin correctly IMed me, this is a ‘PRE-RC1 release’.  Thanks for the clarification Gav.  I heard this AM via e-mail that it was THE actual RC1, saw the ‘RC1’ in the file name, and promptly jumped the gun. 😉

This afternoon I got the following info from Microsoft via e-mail:

We are pleased to announce the release of Pre-RC1 build 5536.16385!  This build represents significant progress incorporating your Beta 2 and 5472 feedback.” Ah well – still downloading anyway 🙂
