    Try it and see if general gaming stability has been improved. I don't know, I just thought I'd give it a whirl. I'll play some games later and see if I notice anything different.

    theres a fix for the media bug, but you have to edit a few things manually. Fairly simple however...

    I think you'll find that there'll be hardly any difference, if any, between this public beta and the final release.

    I think that anyone who uses their machine for real work in a production capability would be wise to wait until the official release, and not play guinea pig.

    Don't really see the point in downloading a beta of a service pack. I'll wait for the final release.
