Anyone tried it yet?

I found a Hackintosh-ed VMware image floating around on Demonoid.

Pretty slick so far. Unfortunately VMware tools made it go ape shit, so i had to roll it back and now stuck with 1024x768 resolution and sub-par VM performance. I guess its OK for playing around.

Really like the new Finder, but again, no tabs support. Hopefully TotalFinder gets ported fast enough.
New iCal is very nice and they finally got rid of the retarded and absolutely useless side bar.
New Mail is pretty nice too. Finally wide-screen support and a new look.
Mail/Calendar/AddressBook accounts are easier to set up now. Just typed my Gmail username/password in Mail and it set the rest for me.
AddressBook looks like iPad version. Crashed immediately when i added my Gmail account to sync contacts with.
LaunchPad is pretty cool, but all it does is replace your Applications folder in Dock and looks a little cleaner with iPhone-like folders.
Whole UI got somewhat overhauled with different progress bars and buttons.

What i did not like, is the new scroll setting. By default it now scrolls backwards, but i guess people would get used to it.
[before you had to move the scroll bar to scroll - move scroll bar down, page content moves up. It's now set to work like iPhone/iPad... you move the page content with an option of hiding scroll bars completely. Kind of retarded, really]

This is a quick 10 minute impression. Did not dig deeper yet
