Whilst I love Windows 7 and X-64 RTM has exceeded my expectations in stability and performance I'm REALLY disappointed with IE8 -- This DEFINITELY needs some major fixes and SOON.
1) Randomly get IE8 has unexpectedly stopped working -- you get a little popup to ask you if you want to return to your home page or restore your last session
2) Using Vmware server -- IE8 gets its knickers in a twist quite a lot -- the virtual machines are still acessible but you get message 1) as above.
(I think vmware made a bo-bo by deciding on using a Web interface for controlling Virtual Machines with vmware server - not a good idea but that's another issue).
3) security settings getting "lost" or changed randomly when switching from "public Internet" to loacal Intranet.
I'm not sure why the EU were ranting against IE -- I'd chuck IE8 in an instant if I could.
I can't for all sorts of reasons so PLEASE don't post use Firefox etc etc. I'm stuck with IE8.
C'mon MS -- IMO you've let done a great OS by a HORRIBLE unfinished implementation of IE8.
