I've been using Beta 2 for quite some time, and I really like what
I see- though I am a Linux fanatic. It detected all my hardware
properly(except for my Kodak webcam) including my two wierd network
cards. Agreed the system still has many bugs ( I discovered 3
within a few days ), but it should be a great release at the end of
the year.

I'm glad to hear your experience was favorable. That is what we aim for (all hardware detected and installed out of the box).

I especially like the printing wizard. Makes life relatively
simple. I did not have to fiddle around much to get proper color
matching with my Canon inkjet printer (which was also properly
detected and installed). The paper/printing choices are excellent -
even my computer illiterate grandma can print professional prints -
hats off!

Thanks for the compliments. I'd be happy to hear of any improvements you'd like. Although, to be clear, we are shutting down changes for Windows XP, so most suggestions will be recorded and evaluated for the next release of these components.

Does Microsoft plan to provide drivers for all digicams out there ?
When I conencted my Canon G1, it searched the net for drivers and
came up with a blank. What are the plans wrt. driver support for
digital cameras? An explorer like interface to browse the G1 would
be excellent.

Our goal is to have drivers for all digicams -- either available on the Windows XP CD or available from the manufacturer on their website. At this point, I can't comment on support for the G1 specifically. Sorry.
