    It is much better than Beta2.
    Install time has decreased to about the same (maybe even slightly less) than XP.
    Memory use has decreased about 25-30%- I'm only using 522MB at idle.
    Pretty much everything seems to work.

    Cool thanks for the reminder...
    After I read this thread I downloaded vista.

    Will install it today since it's got such good reviews (compared to beta 2, etc.).

    I had already downloaded it, although it may be a little bit until i get around to installing it
    Plan for the worst, hope for the best

    I installed it a few hours ago. It's great, wayyyyy better than beta 2.

    I had some problems at first with partition magic screwing up my partition table so I had to reinstall windows xp so that I could instll partition magic and get it to fix what it broke.
    Then i formatted again and installed vista. I used the dvd that I burnt (which had a huge scratch in it so was corrupt) to boot into the setup then ran the install from my hard drive.
    It was so fast...clocker says it's the same speed as XP's install but with me doing them both bac***o-back I can say that the vista install is faster.

    I was just guestimating the time for a regular XP install.
    Using my nLite install onto the i-RAM, XP Pro takes about 10 minutes.
    Vista took about 30.
