This is amazing. I just upgraded and it runs so much more smoothly than WM5.0 A03. Of course, I haven't loaded any programs yet, but so far I'm actually thinking about NOT downgrading to WM2003SE for the first time in weeks.

Thanks MagLite! You are amazing. I've been telling everyone I know about all the great work you've done.

One problem I've been having is with Windows Live. Whenever I try to sign in, I'm always told that it's unable to establish an internet connection. I'm able to connect fine over wifi with everything but Windows Live. It worked fine on WM5 A03 ROM, so it's something about WM6.
