I installed the Escrow / RTM build today. Memory usage went back up with this one. Seems like MS can't stick to what works in the betas and reverts back to bloat with Vista. On bootup I'm back to about 1.2GB of memory usage. Sad cause the last few betas were 800-900MB memory usage and overall resource usage was looking more and more like Windows 7 - this build it jumped back to about the same as SP1. Sad.

No longer showing a beta build string in the system info. Runs stable. Disappointed that is feels and looks just like SP1 after showing noticable improvment in memory usage, boot up and shut down speeds throughout the beta duration.

All in all I'm disappointed and this has now just made me even more excited to see Windows7 arrive. Let's hope they don't bloat Windows 7 before RTM - which is something I'm really worried about seeing the SP2 beta result.
