Windows 7 7600.16384 x64

7264 fixed media center skip fwd and bkwd issues I was having. It is the first build that worked as expected, and my home theater rig has run 7100, 7127, 7229, and 7260. It shows the image rather than a black screen when skipping fwd and back thru TV/Movies. This is the first time I have seen it work correctly in Windows 7. I say upgrade, why not, you are gonna go to RTM anyway in a little bit, why not have some fun while we wait?

XPSP3, Se7en RTM

Out of all the builds I've used, 7127 and 7229 were the fastest ones. 7264 on the other hand, seems to be lacking... I can't explain it, but 7264 (x86) doesn't "feel" right somehow. If I still had a copy of 7229, I'd probably (re)install that instead.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)

At first I thought 7264 was snappier but after a few days, to me 7264 is starting to feel a little sluggish compared to 7232. But I'll just wait for the next leak.
