I'm still installing drivers and other things, but so far so good. Its pretty fast too.
How long did it take you?

It typically takes about 40 minutes for me to be up and running

If you mean install it, it took me about an hour, give or take.

just an FYI to students who are reading this... apparently you can get it for $30 if you're a student...

Enjoy your new OS though... it's fun. I've been on it for a while (since RC in may) and just recently went to build 7600 (RTM) as of the first of September... it's a pleasure to work with in its final form .... particularly surprising and enjoyable on my netbook (posting from it now)

It's pretty sweet.
Vista finally catching up to XP? Whoda thunk??

Is there any reason why people should buy Ultimate this time around? It was a rip off with Vista.

For the home user, not really. But Pro offers a lot of features over Home Premium.
