In the interest of full disclosure, I want to share that everyone's World of Warcraft trial experience will not be the same as mine. I wrote yesterday that their streaming client allowed me to play immediately without requiring a huge download. Not so for everyone.
Yesterday afternoon, College One tried to sign up for the trial and was asked to download a 3.5 gig install file. After a little digging, we learned that the streaming client automatically tests your computer. If it decides your computer isn't fast enough, you must download the full trial in order to play.
Hopefully she'll leave a comment on here and share the frustrating tale of install files and updates ... but let's just say that as of 1:00 a.m., she still hadn't been able to log on and actually play the game.
Just a heads up for any of you thinking of giving WOW a try. I'd hate for anyone to think I was being misleading ...
