After giving it a try, I agree that the default setting for the taskbar is bad, but I've managed to set it up to behave basically just like Vista including having my Quick Launch bar back.

Is there a way to get the Quick Launch bar back exactly like it is in Vista? I've only been able to get it back to where you see the words "Quick Launch" and then you have to click it once to get the shortcuts to pop-up

I tried running a couple of games and the screen resolution does screwy things. Almost like it's running it in a window. Do Dreamscenes come with this build of Windows 7?

yes, drag it left. Then right click and disable the text and title.

One that I do have a "+" for is whenever you click on the "New e-mail" in Live Messenger it opens it with your default browser, instead of IE.

I cannot get the x86 to install in my VMware Server 1.0.7 - comes up with a BSOD right after the first reboot. Had the same problem with the previous build. I'm using Typical settings - Windows Vista 32bit (experimental).

Any ideas?

How do you disable the "preview" on minimized windows? I could've sworn it used to be in the properties somewhere for the taskbar but I can't find it

Wow, I'm surprised that everyone doesn't like the new taskbar. I like it a lot actually, probably because it resembles the OSX dock that I like so much.

I also don't have virus scan now since Windows 7 apparently isn't compatible with McAfee 8.5

I couldn't get the link to work over at the Microsoft site after signing up for the Beta, so thanks, nekro, for the links here.

I'm getting a damn good speed on the x64 link!
