Finally had time to install the RC...

...and it's awesome. So many of the kinks with the hot corners, which was the biggest issue with the CP, have been ironed out. IE10 works well and the Metro apps are quick and beautiful. I really like the flattening of windows in the desktop and look forward to seeing new icons to reflect the metro design sense. Though the CP was interesting, I didn't feel like it was polished enough to use all the time. Now I'm sad that I don't have enough room for another partition on my ssd and Win8 has to live on an hdd partition. If it weren't for that, I don't think I would use 7 at all. Whatever laptop I purchase this summer, I'll probably just run 8RC on it until release.
