    Just installed it, took about 30 minutes. Seems a bit faster than beta 2 overall, some UI improvements and some new glitches. The Audigy2 doesn't work anymore (previously it would work in x86 although only in stereo, now it installs, no errors anywhere but no actual sound), but can't say I'm too surprised.

    List view is indeed back.

    Some improvements in the are of UAC. Most importantly, it doesn't steal focus anymore! Instead we get a flashing taskbar button. That's the way it should be. They also claim improvements with file handling (the infamous delete file on the all users desktop scenario) but I haven't tested that yet.

    One IE regression bug fixed, one remains open. MSN Search is no longer the default in IE7, now it's Windows Live Search.

    WinRAR, Office 2007 and SpeedFan installed and working fine. Installing Visual Studio 2005 now.

    Is the "Add Font" dialog in the Windows Explorer already fixed?

    No it isn't, but the fonts folder does have a new icon. Smiley

    So far, it seems like a solid build.
