I have DSL with an average download speed of 160Mb/s.
Why is it going to take 20+ hours to download this puppy??
Did the server pop a couple of reds and and wash them down with a Red Stripe???
What's the deal here???

Well, it's a massive rush for everyone to download today. Things'll calm down in a few days. It's a good server (or set of servers), but it's also a hugely popular piece of software.

If you tried again in a week, it'd be just as fast as normal.

you are better off finding a torrent right now since the main servers are being hammered. or try to find a mirror thats not heavily used.

It's release day, the servers are under incredibly heavy load and is that supposed to be 160Kb/s?
