There are problems with X-Fi sound cards missing surround sound with Windows 7 beta 1.
All supposed "worksrounds" do not actually work. The best you can get it surround sound when you "test" the card, but when gaming or playing music surround does not work.

Was gonna do some benchmarks, but the results differed only ~2% so I chose not to post 'em. Windows 7 and Vista are pretty much exactly the same when it comes to gaming.

While this is true, there is much less of a lagged feeling in games in W7. Much more like Windows XP even though this doesn't seem to be measurable. That was one thing about Vista I could not get over, games just felt mushy with the input lag being so noticable.

QFT. We need to show strong support for this, so the developers can start 64bit as there primary/only coding and hopefully O/S's start being only 64bit. Obviously Windows 7 is both, which sucks.

+1. I think they should just have 64-bit versions for W7, most OEM desktop and laptops come with at least 3, if not 4GB or RAM so why not just throw 64-bit on there?

On a lighter note, I am pretty darn impressed with what W7 did with my old work laptop. I tried real hard last night to make it crash, or even make it slow down, but I just couldn't!

So today, I'm going to put it on my personal laptop and see how it will run on a little better hardware.

You are the only one getting a 404. There is a reason for that. I've already got x64 and x86 running so you can byte me
