I'm guessing that only happens with large files? It's because it originally downloads the file to a temporary folder, and that pause is just from it copying the file to your download folder. Which will take a while with big files.

One of the main things that made me switch back to XP was the enormous amount of time it took to unzip a zipped folder within Vista. It would take me 40 minutes to unzip an 11MB zip file. Hopefully that is fixed in Vista.

Just FYI, the RTM release is not necessarily the same release as what will come out in march.
Linking to The Pirate Bay should be legal since they don't store any of the data on their servers. Only torrent files.
