You're right all my problems with Vista more than likely caused by other manufacturers inability to write new drivers for old product. However if a WII is backwards compatible why on earth isn't windows? Shouldn't it be able to emulate windows 98/ME/XP/MCE that there are working drivers for?

As for the comments about everyone going thru this when xp came out I must've just been lucky because I never had/have a problem with it.

Actually after a fresh install of XP I couldn't get SWAT 3 to install, so I had to extract the files manually.

Anyway, there is nothing wrong with Vista, and why should Vista emulate 98/ME/XP/MCE? There is already a compatibility mode, and if they did anything more, then everyone would just cry about the bloat.

It's always a lose-lose situation for MS when it comes to the "techie" scene.

Vista is not that bad a fps killer asided from drivers from what i have seen, see my sign VV, mainly due to imature drivers for gfx card is where fps loss is high.

I like vista a lot, but it slows down my games A LOT. =[

Ironically, I was showing my dad linux right before he suprised me with vista, so now hes trying to convert EVERYBODY to ubuntu. So now hes not interested in vista, and my cousin is suddenly a mac guy. Who am I supposed to brag to that I have vista? I've always wanted to try a mac tho.

Never EVER brag about a windows product. Windows is like an *******.... everyone has one so don't think you're special for having it.
