Pros: Absent the original C&C game, this is now my favorite. It's running perfectly (no crashes, etc) in the WinXP compatibility mode (no "run as admin" as some websites suggest) on Windows 7 (64-bit) Home Premium. The game was "installed" by simply dragging the "EA Games" folder into the "Program Files" folder, followed by creating a shortcut to "Game.exe" in the "Start" menu.
Cons: Initially had a problem with the menus not working (vertical line), solved by a recommended fix for Windows 8 (downloaded the three direct draw library (.dll) files & added them to the Sun directory). I depended heavily on "The Game Engine" website (www.thegameengine.org/tiberian-sun-on-windows-7/) for advice (and the .dll files, etc) on getting the game to work properly.
Other Thoughts: None
