I got the beta and used it for several weeks.
kept crashing all the time.
some nice features and nice cool looks, but I hated that it kept crashing, and poor compatibility with older versions, so I uninstalled and went back to the older version.
I hope the release is stable and is compatible with older versions (for file transfer etc) cos u can't expect users on dialup in India to upgrade to new version easily.
(and I wish they had an option were you can download and isntall offline, instead of that stupid installer that downloads from the net, and I wish they'd provide a stripped down version without the explorer bar and lot of unnecessary crap)
