I installed it on Friday from the TechNet download and used it off and on over the weekend.
To me, it seems slower on the Mini 9 than what the Beta performed at. I may actually go back to the Beta version, or try the hackintosh instead that I keep putting off.
By the way, I found this really good instructional on how to create a USB thumb drive installer for Windows Vista & 7. I used it to install Win 7 RC on my Mini.
