As Aaron said, not bad at all for a beta release! Saying that, I would still NOT use it on my primary system.
If you have the good fortune to have any "test box" available, go right ahead, minor issues so far, but looks highly promising.
Read the rules.

This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But, it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

The terms microsoft, beta, and install should NOT be used in the same sentence. As an acronym, they add up to Many Bugs Indeed.

I will wait until it's final too... shoudn't be too long from now.
What if everything around you, isn't quite as it seems...
What if all the world you used to know, is an elaborate dream...
And if you look at your reflection, Is that all you want to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks, Would you find yourself... find yourself afraid to see?

not much of a change that I see except the firewall.
I'm sure there are lots of updated files but haven't really affected anything on my comp yet.

:****: you guys are pathetic........ don't even want to give it a try?

My machine is pretty old - 6 months since I bought it when it was screaming power.
I see real speed increases after installing SP2 and tweaking it with the new options that have sprouted up everywhere.

I can't attest to the speed increase as identified by prathapml, but it has been stable. Only two BSODs in three weeks of testing.
