God that is a good question. But the anything I can think is they are still experimenting with the Core system,and they have to do it this way. I agree with you, my Linux distro is WAY easier to upgrade. 700 megs vs. 2.5gigs. geesh!
Your trying to decide if it's even worth it to go from an interim build to the RC?? I would say yes it is very worth it.. The RC is much better than build 7057.. It's snappier, more stable, multiple bugs have been fixed, and it's the RC, NOT an interim build.. I say go for it! Just remember to do a clean install rather than an upgrade..
Good news all went well
I did a clean install of 7127 and it all went pear shaped . Never had a problem b4 with any build but this time something went badly wrong .
Have installed Vista for a short while to sort some things out . Radenights words come to me though Vista is most certainly not a patch on Windows 7 for speed . Just waiting to get back too windows7 .
