Giving it a whirl on a test machine.

I love the 'not vista' tag

Good so far, although I had to leave it at the point where I started Office 2007 installation.

Download was very straightforward, and quick. I e-mailed the license key to myself via Gmail to make sure that I would not lose it.

Installation was quite simple, although you would need to know which disks/partitions to hose if you were installing it over linux on a multi-HDD machine. That being said, it all went very smoothly.

It's quick given the machine I'm running it on (1.8 GHz P4, 1 GB RAM Radeon X850XT graphics card), but I haven't really pushed it yet. Boot times are fast, but then again, they always are on a new OS installation with nothing else on board :)

It looks very nice, too, with lots of transparency and animations.

ah, you beat me to it :)

I'm planning on having a play with it on my MacBook, just because I'm feeling a bit masochistic. It wasn't too happy about repartitioning without reformatting though, so I had to leave it restoring from a backup.
