Trying to get it now, The download is kinda slow.  ::)

I would imagine their servers are just swamped. Anyone running Win 7 on a Atom based machine?

Windows Genuine” branding is being supplanted by a new name: Windows Activation.

So it will give users even more headaches? Why doesn't Microsoft just give up on WGA and stop  irritating their customers. The people who want to pirate Windows will always find a way around the anti-piracy software. Put those WGA developers to work actually making Windows a useable OS again like it was in the 2k/XP days.
