    What is more annoying to me is the RP and RTM are actually different:
    am not talking about the rainbow colors, and the "metro" icons but the functionality they have removed.
    gadgets are gone - glass is gone (alpha transparency on the desk top)
    I have been running RP since day one and have been tweaking and customizing and debugging to get it to do what I wanted.
    Happy Bunny and was quite happy to buy 4 upgrades.
    RTM is leaked so just to verify everything is still OK, I installed and activated it.
    No glass , themes have to be modified, no gadgets - has to be fixed.
    Result I will now only consider one upgrade for support purposes.
    I have been burnt in the past with ME just horrendous and the vista lack of drivers for a lot of my oddball peripherals
    200 down the tubes. Even if it is not fit for purpose you will never manage to get your cash back from MS.

    Sorry if this is a bit of a dumb question but if I upgrade for 40$ will I still be able to dual boot with linux as the hardware won't have the uefi boot locked in.
