I can confirm the problem exists with Ubuntu 7.04 and MS Virtual PC 2007. Around here, we use virtual machines all the time, but I can understand the Linux devs might not. However, I am rather surprised the BETA process did not include any SiS-based systems (which would have exposed this problem sooner). Mind you, I realize the devs cannot possibly have a copy of every piece of hardware on hand. This problem does seem widespread enough to have been exposed with a large BETA audience.

A black eye for Linux, in general, and Ubuntu, specifically?

BTW, why is a fix taking so long?
