Windows 7 Build 6801 64 bit / Xubuntu Linux 8.04 LTS

Currently I´m playing with the 6801 x64. After having some issues with the sound drivers, I´m able to play Need for Speed Underground flawlessly. Anyway the Flight Simulator X still is quiet and the Windows games like Minesweeper looks like this:

You can't see this in the screenshot, but the highlighted square is not the one under the mouse cursor. This problem also happens in the cards games, but I hope that this will be solved in the next builds. The major problem is with the FSX. Looks that the sound driver is not working properly, although it was working very well under XP x86.
