O believe me, I tried Vista RC1 and I feel like it was most definetly slower. I would not be surprised by this at all. I would almost be surprised if it isn't slower.

But I like to see stories like this that have reference to an original source. For all I know they could have just typed up that story.

Well its good to see some feedback from a user. I have used it a little and thought it was slower but thought it was just me. Well perhaps there will be another News source on this elsewhere also to set your mind at rest.

certainly I wouldn't jump to conclusions yet but I am of the opinion that microsoft and the rest of the technology groups are driving these transition elements I.e VISTA DX10 etc. purely as a business tactic. They are effectively trying to panic us by developing technology that will render much of our equipment redundant. I can't remember such radical transitions in the past but what I do know is that almost all western consumers already have pc's. If pc's were my business I would be wondering how can I get them to dump these pc's I have already sold them and buy new ones.

my point is are these new technologies needed ? I have a basic pc and it runs everything I throw at it to perfection. Why would I upgrade ? because the likes of microsoft have given me no other option.

From what I have gleamed from this site there are many with reservations about Vista, DX10, Quad core, xfire etc. Hell if I thought for a minute that these would take us to the next level then ok i'll dig deep and get the bucks together but IMHO, for what they are there seriously little gain in return to our investment, they are trying to do us over a barrel.

well vista is not something i want to lay down $300 dollars for anyway,

cuz then id want a DX10 GPU and stuff and thats like another $250,

when i could just stick with my current rig, and put that money towards some HD's, cooling, and a case....

EDIT: what i mean is, the hardware industry is getting way ahead of the software industry. i have a decent gaming rig finally, now i want something to play, but i dont want to spend another $600.
