Of course you never did see Beta 1 did you? While this doesn't speak
for after the install but during install Beta 1 took over 2 hours to
install. Now it does it in less than 20 minutes. Beta 1 took up the
whole chunk of 1GB causing my system to really crawl. Now it is at only
60% consumption and my system works well.
A couple of things I don't do though. I don't play games on it. The
graphics drivers for Vista isn't up to par with the ones for XP. I
don't rely on it as my primary machine although I do check my email on
it all the time.
Now then I realize that some people (like yourself) didn't have much
choice in which OS got pre-loaded on the PC. Personally I probably
wouldn't have anything to do with Vista until SP1 if it wasn't for the
fact that I never had to actually pay for my copy of Vista Ultimate.
