Hi Tim,

I think BitTorrent is quite active soon after release date. And because it's network based in stead of server based, you could be downloading earlier than 2 - 3 weeks after release.

The download just takes a little longer, other than that there is no downside. And if you leave your machine open, others will profit too.

Also, I'm not quite sure how the BitTorrent gets started (but it always does).

I wait after the download a week or so, for the initial problems to subside.
