Probably a wise solution. I have RC1 on system and although I don't mind it, some usability issues like menu behaviour on the start button and constant nagging, the drivers just aren't there to allow for decent testing.

Nvidia's driver is very basic
Echo Audio doesn't have a driver yet in beta stage so no audio for me
ULI SATAII controller doesn't have a RC1 driver either

Still, I have found some stuff works but at the moment functionality is the same as Edgy Eft on my system.

Do keep in mind that I'm running the 64bit OS versions.

XP is a stayer for now but I wish Nvidia would get their video drivers to stick with my composite TV out as I get tired of having to reconfigure every time I boot.
