Except the overwhelming for the n00b. I just reformatted my boot partition in the car because of vid. driver problems, and was curious about RR+Vista (Dont do it btw), so I then put XP and everything back on. I had music playing in RoadRunner within 1.5hrs included a full NTFS format of a 300Gb HD and XP installation, driver installation and all.
RoadRunner is now just as simple as everything else and I would actually venture to say the easiest. I downloaded the installer, pushed next, it did its thing. Downloaded winamp, pushed next next, deselected the bloatware like emusic tokens and toolbars, finish, ran the new RR Config, and started RoadRunner. All so simple. Much easier than before.
