    I would never recommend diving in. What happens if it goes all wrong? Download the redistributable version and test on a few systems prior to deploying

    I took an image of my laptop then installed it (at the 3rd attempt). I haven't had too much time to play yet, but so far I haven't noticed too much difference, if any. It seems a little quicker, but that could be because I haven't been as pressured today.

    I nearly sent it out via WSUS today and then decided to wait until the summer when we will be rebuilding our PCs and having a load of new ones. I've put it on my work PC and (touch wood) all seems okay

    I installed it on my workstation today, and it definitely seems to have sped things up a bit. In particulalr office 2007 seems a lot more happy, but I'm not sure if this is just my imagination

    @ maniac : there are quite a few sites out there claiming a 10% increase on the same hardware including Office 2007.

    I'll just settle for not any slower.

    Indeed but I would guess thats vs SP2 without any updates.

    Wouldnt open emails (fully or in reading pane)
    Sorted it (hopefully) by disablingh cached exchange mode
