Well this BETA expires on August 1, and I havn't had any stability or compatibility problems, so ill keep using it until something I need doesn't work. I must say Firefox uses heaps of memory compared to Vista....browsing for a few hours without closing would usually make Firefox take up about 100-150mb or memory, only a couple of hours now and it's using 300-350mb, bit weird.

Absolutely not. Where did you read this? It uses twice the reasources XP did.

It took them long enough to actually release the beta, after their servers died!
Thats pretty true.

What build do you have? I never read anywhere about this expiring. My firefox only uses 64mb. Even with multiple tabs on multiple windows.

Edit- Actually I just read this. Here it is.... sooner then we thought

I patched my Beta 7. So when they try and take it away from us, I wont let that happen.

Unless I get Vista for real, then they can have it lol

Lol, well said. I was reading about this problem right when I was downloading the iso. Microsoft released an update to install immediately after installing Windows 7 that addresses the problem, so as long as you install that you should be right. For those wanting to know, check out this page!
