    It (generally) works fine now, and if you are really concerned, you can use it without installing the current Boot Camp drivers for a while (I ran mine that way for about a week since I was away from my SL install CD.)

    It should just be a driver update when "support" is "official".

    Yes, but you really want to have VMWare Fusion 3.0 for best compatibility with Windows 7.

    I have a printing bug that comes up because of dual booting VMWare/Boot Camp W764 Ultimate, but itherwise all is well.
