The metro ui/ start menu is driving me nuts. Any way to disable it ?

Seems as if you can disable it, cant find any information saying how though or even if you can disable it in the preview build

downloading the 32 version now - plan on running it off USB to preview it.

Love how the download max's out my line speed - 1.8MB/s, cool!  If only all download servers had this much capacity (or is it locally cached?)

got the 32 bit version and tried to install in VMWare fusion on my mac but just get HAL errors. Have dug out an old pc and will fire it up on that to see what it is like.

How you planning to do that? The same tool linux uses?

Only going around 490-530 KB/s here, should be done in 30mins

Finished my install in about 1/2 hour on a real old IBM ThinkCentre machine. At the moment the new UI is making me go WTF

I'm guessing that having a Windows Phone 7 is going to be good practise for this :)
