Vista build 5456

With everyone seeming to praise the latest Vista build 5456 I took the plunge and updated Beta 2 on my TC1100.  A few things of note so far:

  • The upgrade took nearly 2 hours!
  • I had to re-install upgrades to my Graphics card from Windows update
  • My admin account was disabled
  • I am still fighting [and loosing] with search to try and tell it which folders to index
  • Maxthon no longer works (opens and a few seconds later Vista reports that it’s not responding), which is a massive pain for me.  I have installed Firefox on my key machines and a few plug-ins to simulate the group management functions, but it’s very clunky by comparison
  • Video no longer seems to stutter, (but I need to check my Tablet on battery power as well)
