Installed on my home server and home pc already.
installed it on my laptop here, and will install it on my workstation at work tomorrow. To be honest I only use IE to access hotmail, coz the minefield I use still doesnt work with hotmail.
I have to say I like bits of IE8
WSUS is not getting it thought until mid April.

I too (overall) do like IE8 and yes, it is slightly quicker than IE7. I've installed it on my home system and so far so good. Ironically, the only website I found didn't display 100% was a KB article on microsoft.com oh well...
The only other important thing is the updated intres.adm template. I have found the RC1 version (which appears to be complete), but I cannot find the RTM version (as yet).
In the meantime I've created some up-to-date Search Provider policies which works with both IE7 and IE8. You can take a look here
What are people planning with regards to deployment of this? Other than stability, tab and search improvements I'm struggling to come up with a reason to begin a plan to deploy this when Windows 7 is on the horizon.
A lot of the improvements would be disabled anyway i.e InPrivate Mode and we'd run it all in IE7 standards mode until the web matures a bit. So our end users wouldn't really see any benefits from it.
I'd give it a few months. Realistically you could make it a summer project if you routinely re-image machines (so July '09 time frame), but by all means, install it on a few test machines. As yet (as stated in my previous post), I cannot find the RTM intres.adm template which allows you to control new functions within IE8. Without this I wouldn't even consider deploying IE8. The RC1 version appears complete, but knowing Microsoft they may change or add new features in the RTM version.What are people planning with regards to deployment of this?
This would be a summer job or later at least. As the old saying goes 'fools rush in'.
Wont roll it out here until this time next year.
Is there a Group Policy pack for IE8 yet?
I've just deployed this onto a couple of machines to test and gosh is it rubbish.
I much prefer IE7! Ever since I've installed IE8 i've had problems with the adobe reader opening into a web page and problems with my RSS feeds...
I really give up.
The sugested sites feature is funny, you would think that EG is solely about maths and proxys
Tell me about it. Definitely a feature I am going to switch offThe sugested sites feature is funny
