    Now this is good news. I for one can't wait to see how it works and the bugs that are fixed by then.

    I did a fast release, and my system is very buggy.

    I got the latest .iso and thought about re-installing, but decided it wasn't worth the bother. I will wait for the CP. Hopefully, it allows you to install Media Center, has hot corners enabled and Charms bar, if not, I doubt I would even bother with it.

    Don't suppose I am the first to note! but "BUGS BUNNY" in the same post. Walt Disney might claim you've pinched his copyright.

    I'm not using Bugs Bunny.. just the word Bunny and Walt can't claim copyright to a word, IMO.

    What does Walt have to do with it? Doesn't Bugs Bunny belong to Warner Bros. Cartoons?

    The name Bugs Bunny is a trademark of Warner Bros. You can't copyright a word, or even a short group of words. A trademark is very different from a copyright, and is very limited. The Bugs Bunny design/image is probably copyrighted, but BunnyJ's avatar is clearly not a picture of Bugs Bunny.

    I am hoping there is a lot more progress going on behind closed doors at Microsoft than what we are seeing in the Tech Preview if they are already planning on releasing the Consumer Preview so soon.

    I'm not sure if I'm the only one that thinks this development cycle is similar to that of Vista's (which I thought was kinda cool at the time...) - the difference being that WTP is being made available to the general public a lot earlier (in Vista it was at Beta 2 stage)

    Given that this OS has not been "closed tested" (as in selected beta/MSDN distributions) by the time it reached a public release it is much more than I expected - however, being an "evolution development", fixes for some components will break others, thus we need to keep that in perspective as well.

    As long as they provide options for desktop/touch users, it bodes well.

    Telemetry is not an accurate yardstick to gauge user acceptance - the method they are employing now(albeit more arduous) is way better.
