Yeh I like it - I grabed the leaked installer a few weeks ago.

One thing I dont like is lack of options for how the GUI is laid out.

Yay! I've been using the old Beta1 version for ages.. About time there was an update.. They're taking their bloody time with this...

Btw, is it me or does alot of nV News look like its all in Bold now.. Didn't use to on Beta1, its kinda narking me.

Also, on top level on nvnews forums, its using 94 Meg!! Jesus.. talk about memory hog!

Heres what I'm talking about. On the left is IE7 Beta 2, on the right is Firefox. Notice how fat n blurry the text in IE7 is.. It wasn't like this in Beta1 or IE6..

Oh apparently its some clear type option. But turning it off doesn't disable it, and it also borks fonts in outlook express.

Way to go MS..
