    I've installed it in my laptop and so far I quite like it... for the following reasons:

    1. The install was real fast... and it even installed all the required audio/video/network drivers automatically during the install. HUGE improvement, that.
    2. Startup is faster than Windows 7 (not sure about everyone but for me it is)
    3. Nice and slick UI... really easy on the eyes.
    4. Some of the apps, namely news and sports are pretty good. I felt like readying a real newspaper

    The only thing I don't like about it is that they have not given the option to enable the legacy start button/start menu and you have to install some registry hacks in order to achieve that... even doing that doesn't make the start menu function like the actual windows 7 one.

    So.. any of you installed it? How are you liking so far? Recommend us some apps/tweaks etc... :)

    Have a fun weekend.
