    Microsoft shold come out with a MSN or Windows messenger with a wonderful 3d effect! It is so clean and the visual style with it is professional too!

    Windows XP 64bit edition is NOT a good option for a home machine or your primary workstation and ONLY recommended for developers looking to develop on the 64bit CPU. The drivers are NOT in place and it is NOT consumer ready.

    Oh, I guess then I haven't been using it for a few months now without any trouble. I must've dreamt that.

    Also, I bet it could run on XP x64, and that it's just lousy version detection code.

    it lacks search .. and doesnt support networks

    there is no right mouse anywhere - and file edit view help are gone.

    in this case - i can at least sort of understand where the new UI is going

    moving file edit etc under the address bar is stupid (also missing) - but getting rid of them all together is INTERESTING Smiley

    The app rocks, at the PDC lookin' at it close up and damn, you know...The 3d is stunning, but it's bull that it requires Sp2 to install>

    My friend installed sp2 before i left and he got the BSOD.

    Way to go!

    SP2 is one of the hard facts of life these days.  Sucks when it kills your current install, but really every xp machine ought to have it.

    "WinFX Runtime Components 3.0 Beta 2" takes for-freaking-ever to install. It's been stuck like this for a while:

    haha - i love this app (needs search + address bar) as well as Back/ahead in some areas) plus it's hard to move the window with all the tabs open = exta room to grab bar at top?
