Microsoft makes it clear that the ONLY authorized download site is their own and that is to protect you from pirated copies that may contain a little more than the Microsoft version.

I would definitly not be in a hurry to download, and install this thing. Know it's great to be the firstest, with the mostest, but I think MS is allready putting out patches for it. I don't think it gives you any performance improvements, just tightens up security.
I'm fully updated, and running Belarc Advisor, shows 30 SP2 updates allready installed. I just ordered the MS update CD for SP2. but may not install it. Oh well, I'm old school, and think if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Happy
