    Nice one!

    Couldn't get the download manager to start with FF, IE8 worked fine though

    Cheers, completly forgot about this. Been wanting to have a play since i tried the beta on my laptop a while ago.

    I did have a problem finding drivers for most of my hardware though, will i have to try and find win 7 drivers or will i be able to somehow force vista drivers on it?

    The question is, 32-bit or 64-bit?

    64 has been excellent for me throughout the experience.

    I did figure it's about time I got onto 64, but everytime I mention it people say there's no point...

    Aye, it will be rather busy after all. Will try them again later, though our American friends should all be tucked up in bed at the moment. Will be even busier in about 2-3 hours.

    XP Mode's not available yet unless you are on Technet (plus I think?) where the Beta lives.
