Downloading it right now, what should I expect?
Using Windows XP Home ATM.

For driver versions, should I just download Vista ones?

I tried Windows 7 on my secondary (much slower HDD) and it feels really smooth and everything works fine.

Eagerly waiting for the release.

Every fresh OS installation usually is like this. But my Win7 Beta is still smooth after four months of use Smile

For the next best thing to fresh install is to uninstall all programs, do a complete registry clean-up (CCleaner, Glary's Utilities, etc.), virus and malware scan and reinstall all updated programs)...
