Windows XP SP2 - Anyone tried it yet?

I'm currently downloading a recently updated XP SP2. It's 273MB. Jeeesh. It's a "Technical Preview" version which is not a RC for public use, but can be downloaded by anyone though.

I've had a preview version running for a month or so now. I've had no problems with it, other than it reports I have no anti-virus software installed (which I do). It hasn't caused any problems and I love the changes to the firewall.

I know there are older threads on this, but when the final release is out, does everybody with only RC have to uninstall it in order to install the final service pack?

Also has there been a significant difference in the number of processes running?

I have had it for a few months as well. I run AVG and it does not show in the list. I think Norton and Mcafee are the only two on the list.

I am running build 2120 and it (and all prior builds) have been unable to detect my copy of NAV2004.

Yeah I read somewhere there was a glitch with it picking up Nortons hopefully they fix it in the final release.

Been running it a month or so before I deploy the full version to my department. So far, so good. The firewall also doesn't find NAV Corporate, but I'm that'll get fixed by release.
