I can't wait for the release, though i'm still not too sure about it. Yes i've made judgements in the past, but i'm not going to never try it. Who knows, I might be suprised. But just based off of the things i've heard, other than its super quick boot time, i'm not impressed. Hopefully Google will wow me...
