I can tell you right now that you wont be able to download it, at least apple wont provide the bandwidth. The current builds I have seen are at least 500Mb in size

... a good point in case was the Quark 5 beta release several days ago. Couldn't get on web site for 2 days 'cause of demand -- and all for a small 35mb file!

So, I doubt Apple are gonna make a 500mb download available (except perhaps in small sections, as has been done in the past).

I really don't fancy waiting for Mr Posty to deliver ;)

500 megs? forget it, it'll never happen. no offense to anyone, but it seems like they barely have enough bandwidth to support their web server! usually when i go there, its not all that fast (and i have an 80k/sec dsl line), so like i said, forget it, they'l never (/cant) support that kind of bandwidth. So either wait till it hits the Charraco (/hotline) servers or ol' mister posty 'll have to make a visit (unless your desperate enough to actually drive to the fn place and pick it up)

I agree that they will most likely not allow it to be d/led from the site but I disagree with the "slow server" claim. I am on a cable connection and have never seen speeds under 300k/s from Apple.

yeah, I know how you feel. I had SDSL while in college and it was pretty disappointing to hear my friends speak of their great cable speeds compared to my DSL speeds. Cable has definitely been better than my DSL encounter.
