Don't forget that this software is a development poject and, as such, is likely to contain all sorts of bugs and foibles. The whole point of releasing the program is permit mass consumer testing to assist MS in the development of a saleable product.

If you have installed it as a replacement of your working XP then you haven't read the terms and conditions of the offer to use it.
