    Just upgraded from Beta2 to 5472 and my max screen resolution has dropped
    from 1920x1200 to 1600x1200 ATI X600 laptop graphics :-(

    Because this is a widescreen laptop display it looks horible!

    The memory stick does not work in this release, nor do the extra buttons
    (volume, CD Eject etc)

    I have the same problem with the display. My work around (for the time
    being) has been to fire up device manager, uninstall the display adapter
    driver, click scan for new hardware (video will reinstall), then 1920x1200
    is availible in the property page. I had to set the screensaver to blank
    screen, otherwise the res would drop back to 1600x1200.

    (I have an ati 9700 and am using the microsoft video driver.)

    Down side, I have to do this every reboot....
