    I couldn't get the download to go further than 512kb last night at 12:30am.

    No big deal, though. I won't be ready to install it for another week or two anyway.

    Been running really well for me so far. XPM is pretty cool, but definitely still needs a bit of work. Shows a lot of promise, though.

    I just wish my higher-horsepower desktop machine supported Intel VT, as my laptop has to work pretty hard when I have the XPM running.

    Overall, I am remarkably impressed with Win 7. Seems to perform considerably better than Vista did on the same hardware. I have one instability issue that is related to my ASIO sound card. The lack of a proper driver being the reason. M-Audio will release a proper driver once the OS is closer to release. I actually might buy it.

    Thanks for the md5 sums.
    Now I know that my downloads are ok.
    Why couldn't MS provide these?

    Anyway, thanks!
