Yeah, I'm thinking the same thing.

I bought the beta, and pre-ordered it the day we (beta testers) got the
e-mail about the discount.  I should have it tomorrow (maybe today...gotta
start backing up data).

I've been running it (beta) on a PowerBook and on a blue and white G3, and
it seems to be pretty happy.  Not as fast as 9, but it's just beta.  I'm
hearing mixed reviews on the speed of the final version.

Very tres cool. 

You going to write something up about it?  I'd be interested in knowing what
