No, and I hope to never have to deal with that DRM'd mess. XP is at the limit of what I can take.

I will also stick as long as possible to XP.. although M$ already wants to push Vista by several things which XP does not offer - protected mode for IE is a correct approach (although I do not use IE anyway).. and the fact that DirectX 10 won't come out for XP sucks me (although as far as I can see DX 9.0L will be equal).

Personally can't wait for it. Might put this otherwise useless 64Bit CPU to use (don't you dare mention that wad of turd XP-64)

I'll be dual booting between XP and Vista. I'll probably stick with XP due to vista's crippled OpenGL pipeline.

Downloaded it a while ago, haven't installed it yet. I figure dual booting is my best bet, I mean, eventually we're all going to be using it. Might be a couple of years before XP is fully phased out, but it'll happen. Might as well be used to Vista well in advance.

Sure am! Build 5728, fully activated. I like it, nice, stable and all my programs/games/porn run fine. Still not using IE7 though, will always stick with firefox, but love having Media Center running when a few mates are round drinking. Nice touch. Plus, it's eye candy compared to XP.

DRM'd mess? What do you mean by that? I wouldn't be surprised, but I don't know just how far Microsoft is going with DRM this time.

I'm looking forward to it but my previous attempts to install the betas have gone rather wrong. Usually dies on bootup after it's installed, and sits on a black screen =( Both on RC-1 and the next one.Hoping I'll have better luck with the retail version. There's really no reason why my machine shouldn't be able to take it.

Using RC1 on my big PC. It kicks serious ass. The UI is just orgasmic. Can't wait to get the final build installed.

* "Windows Media Player 11 does not permit you to back up your media usage rights (previously known as licenses)."* "Digital media files must be in stored in monitored folders for media sharing to work properly in Windows Media Player 11."* "Content that is protected with media usage rights cannot be played in Windows Media Player 10 if a computer already has the Windows Media Format 11 Runtime installed."* "Recorded TV shows that are protected with media usage rights, such as some TV content recorded on premium channels, will not play back after 3 days when Windows Media Player 11 Beta 2 for Windows XP is installed on Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005."That's just a sample.

64-Bit Linux? =P You could dual-boot or something, you don;t have to abandon XP totally...

And stored in monitored folders? Monitored by who? Where is a list of these DRM abuses Microsoft is going to implement? I'd like to know just how much more they are going to try to curtail people's rights and hinder legitimate activity on people's own damn PC's.

If I could get a copy of RTM and a legitimate key, I'd give it a spin on thje Linux box to see how it performs. Otherwise, Fedora Core/XP/XP all the way on my machines.

While I don't necessarily agree with it, no one really needs to use WMP. I haven't in some time...

From the way they were so specific about the version of WMP and the OS, and the fact that the version of WMP in question is a beta, this one sounds more like a bug than anything else.
