    I see, like that is it. UK seems to have been relegated from USA's no1 ally *lapdog, into the wilderness. *puppy*

    I see how it is now under Obama.

    This is seriously "off topic", but I can't resist. Do you think President Obama has something to do with whether or not a Microsoft beta is available for download in the UK?

    No. But I will check the archives in another 30 years. Just to be completely sure.

    *PROBABLY BETTER END THIS OFF TOPIC*

    Strange that this beta is available in China (?) and not in Europe

    I think part of that is too get it on developing countries that may have unprotected PCs.

    Microsoft are probably too scared to release it in the EU in case the gravy train bureaucrats here find something they can sue them with.

    Aah, totally forgot about that! Strange that India is not on the list (would be more logical than Israel).

    I live in Hong Kong but I was still accepted to MS Connect to download the beta, although I got "Not available in your country or region".

    Works totally fine in India. No wrong region msg or anything else. But the site is REALLY REALLY slow ( maybe its the rush or its my ISP :mad: )

    You may have a point. The EU appears heavily funded by MS.

    How about keeping your right-wing insinuations to yourself. Some of us here are Obama supporters.

    This site is a place to discuss computer security not our political persuasion. Alright?

    Later...

    I think he was engaging in very dry British sense of humour. Irony at its best!

    Irony at its best? Very dry British humor? Possibly ( :rolleyes: ). Then again the humor of Benny Hill always did eluded me. :). This might be another example of it.

    I'm sitting here in New York and it's telling me it's not available in my region :p

    It's probably just a firefox thing, I'll check it out with IE

    *edit* no go in IE 7 or 8 as well
