I was so hesitant to get this OS, but I did.. and it's actually quite amazing. System performance is actually FASTER (at least on my PC) than XP. I've only been on it about 20 minutes so I haven't even dove into everything yet. Speech recognition is sweeeeet, definitely for the lazy but still sweet. The new Alt-Tab is awesome. Very flashy but extremely useful. I'll post more with detailed descriptions, pictures, and a better review in a bit. Sweet!
