I'm just saying it's a lengthy process in which they recommend not doing anything with your computer while it is working. A lot of users don't want to bother (another reason people don't have updates for the OS leading to infection). At least in the U.S., there is little patience these days.

Couple that with people being frustrated that it would take a long download and installation just to get a browser...

I'm glad MS took the high road.

I personally supported the original decision to require SP1, but that is just me.

If you are to lazy or to 'bothered' to update your computer, then people shouldn't whine when they get infected. Which is what they generally do and then spread BS about how the OS is crappy because you can easily get infected.

Regardless, requiring SP1 would've been a better move, it not only forces people to get the latest security updates. You also do not have to restart to install IE9 with SP1 (final) installed.

So there's one group of people working on the SP1 beta, a second group working on the IE9 beta, and a third group working on the Security Essentials 2.0 beta. Do they actually work together to ensure compatibility between the beta products?

I'm certain that testing is done to ensure compatability. How it is done and when it is done, I do not know.

MS Quote:
"Internet Explorer 9 will require a number of patches before it can run; Microsoft has made many fixes to the Direct2D and Media Foundation APIs that the new browser heavily depends on. These fixes will be incorporated into Service Pack 1. However, standalone updates are also available, and the browser will install these if necessary."

If you still havent got it working, before you try again run revo uninstaller and remove everything in Advanced mode.
Then type %temp% in search box and delete IE9 temp files (when i tried installing a second time it tried re-downloading and i gave up after downloading appeared for 20 mins messing things up)
Then try reinstalling.I have both Betas SP1 & IE9 with no problems

just an idea

I want to thank all those beta testing people. If those people didn't do all that testing it would take forever to get these new things. It takes a lot less time to download a SP or a browser update than the time it takes to remove a virus or such. A product as great as Windows 7, sold by the millions to all kinds of people will always have updates.
There are always going to be thousands of people trying to hack it, put bad things in it, or steal it. Security updates IMHO should always be installed no mater how long it takes.
