I want Vista for gaming and having a platform that utilizes my dual core 64 bit processor.
I'll probably get a free copy of it when I buy a new laptop next month, we will see.
Microsoft deserves pirating, sounds like Vista is a big "Kick Me" sign.
It won't be free, costs are passed to the consumer.
What games now run better/faster on 64 bit systems?
This article requires a Computer Degree almost.
You could be sorry if you want Vista for gaming. It is almost a given that your video card and monitor are incompatible with Vista if any HD content is running. Your game will be restricted to 800 by 600 or perhaps even 640 by 480. Your audio will be turned off or made to sound terrible. This could be content on a web page or on a CD. Microsoft could even decide your $300 Video Card was a threat to HD content and just deactivate it. Buy any new card and Monitor to overcome this and it will be slower or far more expensive in order to jump through all the new Copy Protection Hoops. Even dual core processors will be brought to their kneen by all the Copy Protection software Microsoft is requiring.
Vista will almost guarantee that PC's will be in the shop after a year or so. Dust alone can make the PC think it is compromised and then Microsoft will just dumb it down or not let it boot.
Drivers will be almost impossible to write and very, very expensive. Thus cards will be far less capable yet more expensive.
