    I've just installed beta 2 on an Acer Travelmate 8200WLMi laptop and the CPU
    utilisation of explorer.exe is at about 80%.

    The memory utilisation has gone up from 80MB to 158MB in about half an hour...

    most common causes for cpu is indexing and windows defender.
    you can disable indexing service .
    you can stop defender.

  4. Well... it's not too bad, but if you have more than about 5 gadgets running,
    I noticed the I/O shoot way up.
