    Yeah I tried out the personal edition a few months back. It took forever to install and then to get to running the first time. I also had a system lockup followed by a nice pretty blue screen. That was enough for me. I'm sure someone else may have a different experiance but I couldn't continue waiting for it to work.

    Syswatch is just SnS with cosmetic changes, as far as I can tell. SnS was very unstable on my computer. I had to restore an image.

    Same experience here; every version of SnS I tried froze my computer.

    Pity they dropped the rhino icon :p
