Have you installed it yourself Dazz?

I thought about trying it, but I don't feel like reinstalling everything at this time if it screws up. I rather be playing some UT2004 tonight.

Do people really leave System Restore enabled on their OSes? Whoa...

A mere sample would include: Byzantines, Persians, Arabs, Turks, Circassians, Kurds, Abbassids (Iraqis), Egyptians, Kharezmians (Genghis Khan), Mamluks, Mongols, Latins (Crusaders), Ottomans, French and English.

It is not and never was Palestinian land.

It's completely transparent in XP, doesn't interfere with any applications or games. I just turn down the amount of disk space system restore allocates (from 12 down to 4-5 percent).

I think I'll ship this beta mainly because I don't want to take the chance of it messing up my bluetooh connection for my MS Wireless Desktop for Bluetooth since that thing is so damned tempermental. Plus, its not like there is anything in the service pack that is going to make my computer run faster or something fun like that.

Found the patched uxtheme.dll that's compatible with this version. Download from here. If you have problems downloading, PM me your e-mail address and I will send a .rar version to you.
