    I find the ISO download page easier and more useful: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/iso

    The page was also pretty fast for me, 2 seconds to load.

    I imagine that despite the fact not everyone who'll get 8 will be using apps that it'll still have a pretty decent collection of apps.

    Can someone get me a MD5 Hash of the file once they have it downloaded? I want to make sure that this ISO is 100% good before I burn it to a DVD-R.

    I've got mine installing in a VM for the time being. If it's all good I'll probably install it dual-booting with Windows 7.

    Moment, grabbing a SHA1 hash also to make sure it matches the one on Microsoft website.

    And it doesn't, so you can ignore this hash I guess
