    Primary? No, ran in a VM, put on a spare laptop for a bit....
    When the official one is avail, I'll put in on my main workstation at the office...soon after my main gaming rig at home after I know the games I play run fine on it.

    Not bothering with any RCs on my main rigs now because once the official one comes out I'll have to format 'n reinstall again...because so far, AFAIK none of them can be key changed to official on the fly..gotta format/reinstall.

    On my main Intel E8400 I am running RC 7201 as of today and it is VERY good and as soon as the RTM is available, that will be going on the beast as well.

    Am looking at building a NEW beast, AMD Phenom II 955 with 12gb mem.

    Windows Live is a piece of crap! Can't even get to the official RC because they are having "Technical Difficulties" with Windblows Live.

    If you can wait CD, get the 7230 release, only a day or so to go.

    really no point beyond 7230 from what I'm understanding as the RTM will likely hit at the end of July

    I doubt I'll grab any other versions at this point. Maybe later this summer, but not now.
