Microsoft Windows Vista RC1

Anyone taken the time and put up with the effort to install MSWIN RC1 Build 5600. I did over the weekend and have it working for almost everything XP was working with. It pretty well works just fine and I am underwhelmed with the changes. My 4 year old computer works with it just fine and the computer rates at 4.1 on the MS scale of 1 to 5. Seems a tad faster than XP. I am not a big game person so maybe I am not seeing what Vista may be best at. Would be interesting to hear from others that did the same thing.

"underwhelmed" is the exact word I use to describe my experience as well.
Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.
