Yes, it’s a beast. It’s huge, but it’s exactly what I expected, and what I wanted. And I can finally do it: I can play Battlefield on “High” graphics at 1600×1200 resolution, and it certainly does look pretty. It’s no less frustrating, but it’s pretty. And my desktop at 1920×1200 isn’t too shabby either. It’s been extremely quiet and fast, and I’m quite impressed. What didn’t impress me? Having 75 processes running when I first booted up Windows. By uninstalling a lot I’ve cut that down by 20, but it’s still fairly high. I think I’m just going to deal with it until Vista gets officially released. I didn’t want to reformat because I’m lazy, and I got a score over 3500 in 3DMark06, so it’s good enough for now. So far, so good.
