To whoever installs it first, let us know how it runs.

And heck yeah, when Win7 comes out, I'll be saying good riddance to Vista myself.

It's working great too! The only big difference so far is the speed of the programs, which has doubled for me. Nice job MS!

RTM will be the final, correct? Will I need to uninstall/reinstall when it launches on the microsoft site?

No UI changes?

I'm going to wait till the MSDN files are updated to SP2 and then download that and wipe all my systems clean and install but, I was hoping for more feature upgrades

Also, how is stability?

There is new functionality - namely native support for OpenDocument (OpenOffice) formats, and integrated XPS/PDF export (formerly a separate free download).

you really are a tool, of course people care. Vista SP2 is final, and will be out to public in 1-2 weeks. Final version of Win7 is still few months away.
