Microsoft to distribute SP2 on one million CDs: Builder AU: Program: At Work

Looks like Microsoft is thinking about ideas for distributing XP SP2 out to the masses. Personally I think a “CD-drop” from a plane over Australia’s major cities would have to be the first order of business. After that standing the train stations handing out the CD’s would be a pretty good idea. Come to think of it, maybe us developer types should stand there handing out copies of dotnetfx.exe . . .

    Hrm, I seem to remember Danny Beck at the last security summit in Melbourne mentioning that they were planning on many distribution channels for the CDs including magazine covers, shops…

    I saw the comment on that page which stated an 80MB install. That’s much smaller than the 200 odd MB I seem to remember downloading one afternoon. Hrm… Super compression technology?
