P.S. It Is Downloading At About 700-800 KBPS On My Comcast High Speed Internet Connection, So It Will Be At Least 1 Hour Before My DVD Download Is Completed.

Is it really necessary to test the DVD nightly build at this stage? If the ISO team made an announcement & are looking to squash bugs with that image, that's great, otherwise it's just going to waste bandwidth (and the torrent isn't available, so it's not possible to ease the load).

I can't really see much advantage in downloading the DVD - any extra software you might want can easily be downloaded later. The only advantage of the DVD I can see is if you're ordering by post due to having a slow net connection. But maybe someone can tell me why they want to download the DVD - I may have missed something. (It would take four hours plus for me.)

Let me Tell You This Guys, I Got The 09/20/2008 DVD All Downloaded, Burned 2 DVD, And Installed, And Already I Have Found Several Things That Are Now Broken That Were Not Broken In Alpha 6, Just FYI. 4 Example: The Gnome Desktop Installer Is Now Completely Broken Unless You Boot 2 Live CD 1st And Then Install From Live CD, Just FYI.
