Yah, I had trouble getting it to download using FF in Windows. I assumed it was either adblock or greasemonkey causing the grief. When I finally did get it to download in IE, it forced an activeX "download manager" on me for it to work.
On the plus side, I ended up with a bunch of spare license keys due to MS's inability to make a download cross-browser compatible. Not sure if I'll use them, but it's nice to get something in return for MS's stupidity.
Windows is playing a diminishing role in my life. But, I'll probably keep 1 Win box around for games and odds-and-sodds. If Win7 continues down the path it's on now, I can see Win7 becoming a replacement (for me) for XP.
For now, it'll stay in it's VM sandbox.
Couple of interface annoyances:
It tends to obfuscate the file system, desktop, and quicklaunch. They're all there, just getting them to work the way I'm used to involves flipping more dipswitches than I'd like. It's continuing along a long line of MS and Apple habits of trying to force you to organize your files in certain specific ways.
I like my byzantine, incomprehensible to anyone but me file system.
