I just downloaded wp8 from www.download.com, and it isn't even
compressed. The files are called GUI*.GZ, but are really in uncompressed
tar format !  23mb ! Has anyone else downloaded this version ?

Rename the *.gz file *.tar, then 'tar xvf file.tar' to untar it. If that
doesn't work, try renaming the file *.tar.gz, then gunzip it, then untar.
That should work.

If all else fails and you have some free time, try the download from tucows.
Save the file as whatever.tar.gz and it should work fine.
