What's new in 7077?

I have Build 7057, and I will upgrade to 7077 soon. What are some changes I will notice?

You won't notice much cosmetic changes. The main changes are in the hardware driver support & stability. There are a lot more device drivers so more hardware is supported/installed without the need to install seperately after installing 7077 (e.g. anything from 7000 to 7057 would not recognise my Wireless LAN, 7068 & 7077 install straight away). Also you'll notice increased performance, startup/shutdown is now faster, Media Center runns a lot more smoothly. Those are just a few i've noticed, if you read through the different posts regarding 7077 you'll get a really good idea of what you're asking.

Faster performance is always a plus. Do games run better?

Also, although there aren't much, what are some of the cosmetic changes?

I have noticed the ability of the OS to get good versions of drivers has improved. That's the main thing I noticed. It's an important improvement though.

Performance hit on 7077
I moved to 7077 from 7068 and noticed a big performance hit. Is anyone experiencing this? Almost reminds me of Vista :( Benchmarking with Geekbench and CineBench is bringing the same results but the overall system doesn't feel as snappy: -Boot is a lot slower. - First time you start an app is...
