Anyone tried Vista?

I know there have been beta versions of Windows Vista knocking around the usual places for a while now - has anyone tried installing/using it?

 

If so, what is it like? I've only seen a few promo videos on youtube and it seems a bit, well, jazzy. Like they're trying to make it look really smart a-la Macs.

No, but I've got an XP theme that makes it look like Vista and a Vista wallpaper.  I'd quite like to give it a shot, but I don't really have the time to fix everything if it borks everything (or indeed just one thing) up.

 

Kumbalala kumbalala kumbala vista.

Woah, woah, woah, woah nada vista,

eeny meeny salameeni ooh ah luala meeny...

It's ok to have a little play around on the 3d desktop business and to check out the new IE. I haven't seen it for a few revisions (my housemate has it installed) but it's not something that can replace XP because there's a lack of drivers and software for many things. It wasn't too stable either, and it's probably not much better now.
