I installed Beta 2 (build 5231, 32-bit) this morning. It wasn’t finished by the time I left for work. So far, I am unenthusiastic about the new UI. I am using a 2.8 ghtz Pentium D, with 4G of ram, and everything runs slow. The worst part of the UI is the Windows Explorer. It added a ton of new features, but they don’t hang together well. The whole thing requires way more fine motor skills that previously.
I will try the new build tonight and see how it goes.
Also, we started using Quicken 2006 last night. So far so good.
