    I've got the few-month old beta version, and it's been perfect (knock on wood) ever since.

    I'm a tad nervous to update to the final version, kinda like a "don't fix what isn't broken" thing...

    I guess I'll leave it until I format for some other reason or whatever...

    Download and install went smoothly - let's hope it's operation is as smooth!:eek:
