DirectX 10 for XP? - Page 5

I didn't say "on x day of x year, Vista will be the best OS"...I merely stated a simple truth...hardware and software both progress. MS will work some bugs out of Vista, and hardware devs will come up with new ways to make Vista run smoother on newer rigs.

Just out of curiosity, I installed 2k on this rig not long after I built it. I compared it to XP, and XP blew it away in every test I ran. It isn't that 2k magically started sucking at some point in time, it's just that my newer hardware was built with XP in mind instead of 2k or 98. The same will happen with Vista in time. It won't happen overnight or all at once, but it will happen.

I don't really dislike Vista, it's just that XP is more familiar to me and I can get things done quicker when I know my way around the OS. I'm learning Vista though, and I won't mind making the switch complete when the time comes.

When there are enough DX10 games on the market to compel me to upgrade my video card and such, I'll probably switch over to Vista instead of using the emulator, mostly because I already own Vista and I won't gain anything or save money by using the emulator. I can see where the emulator would be useful for those that dislike Vista or are unable/unwilling to build or buy a new rig just to play some newer games on it though.

...it's just OpenGL emulating DX10.. and using alot of software emulation = more CPU/RAM usage.

Ye lets put an application that prompts you to move a file or open a program.
No offence but i can see why you have that name. You are like all the other sheep that don't bother to read ANYTHING about Vista.

IF you did read up on it. You would realise that it doesn't HOG the ram. It stores things in it like frequently used programmes so that when you want to access this programme it will load quicker.

All these people that complain about the RAM are really starting to irritate me now. Why would you be bothered if Vista uses the RAM anyways, you aren't using it so it is just going to waste. Atleast Vista utilises some of this wasted RAM

Besides, the security system in Vista is a hell of alot better than XP.

Now on topic, whether this is legal or not. Microsoft will not allow this thing to leave beta stage, they would not take that risk

remember you will still need DX10 hardware for this (or at least if you dont need it the performance will suck) - i'm ready for Vista, if you really wanted the quickest OS ever, why did you leave 3.1?

This thread is nothing but people who know nothing about Vista badmouthing it versus the guys who know what they are doing defending it.


Please, before you badmouth Vista please make sure you have the following :
1 - Skills in programming and an understanding in advanced languages.
2 - Actually used Vista without the intent to prove it "sucks", which it doesn't.
3 - Used Vista on level 5 machine. (A machine that has good enough hardware to enable everything in Vista in other words. You can find out your level in control panel somewhere.)
4 - Understand all (or most) of the differences between XP and Vista.
5 - Accepting to change.
