Anyhoo... I'm going to wait until is reaches RC status before I give it a try.

Installed this yesterday, screwed up Mirror's Edge. Reinstalling Vista fixed it. I'll wait for the final version instead...

Im running Vista x64 with the SP2 beta. Mirror's Edge runs just fine here. Everything else too, uses alot less memory than SP1 or RTM. Runs alot like W7.

No need to jump on me. Stating a problem doesn't mean it should happen to everyone... I'm just saying it was screwed up for me. It might have been clashing with something else I had installed on my system, since my Windows installation is completely clean now.
