I actually put this on a second hd for my laptop, so I can switch back and forth when I want to play with it. Using the Ultimate version, so I can have both multimedia and AD support. It's really nice, but such a learning curve. The actual menus to make changes are still the same, but the route to get to those menus is usually MUCH different. But overall, quite an improvement.

Have too many problems with the IE 7 Beta. I can only imagine what would happen if I were to load a beta version of the OS. I'll wait until it's released for sale and patched up for a good year before buying it.

beta of IE 7 is working pretty good for me, the fonts are kinda blurred for me sometimes, but that's about it.

I found out windows media 11 hates when you have the start bar at the top for some reason.

When Microsoft releases a new OS, I usually wait until they release Service Pack 2...
