Is 7264 worth upgrading from 7229?

A simple yes or no will do.

If you have more description, feel free.

I have installed every build from 7000 to 7229 when they came out and I am getting a little tired..

So, if it's worth it, I'll do it.

As RTM is round the corner. Installing a intimate build is not worth it.
And if you are as crazy as me when it comes to new software it`s worth it. It gives you mental satisfaction that you are using the latest build.

7264 is From the RTM brunch but not quiet RTM.
There are also other builds in the RTm brunch.
The newest is 7265.

Don`t hope for a major UI Change..
YA they could add some walls, sound and themes.

I say upgrade (not clean install) for 3 reasons.
1. It faster than build 7229.
2. More stuff fixed & newest build.

Tried updating from 7229 X64 and it does not let me!

"You can’t upgrade this prerelease version of Windows 7. Go online to see how to install Windows 7 and keep your files and settings. "

I have been upgrading since 7100 and now it does not work.

I upgraded from 7229 to 7264. 7264 ran much slower than 7229 (all x64). I then did a clean install of 7264 and there was an improvement in overall performance, but it also seemed to introduce an AHCI bug on wake from sleep.

I am keeping 7264 because I can run it with AHCI disabled. If I had to do it again, I would not.
