Exactly. You've got the right idea. Vista already uses available memory much better than XP.

Without windows we might never be where we are today, or we would be alot farther than we are but hey. I'm content with not being blown up by large weapons and using my Windows until i find something better. No Linux is not better, I play games. No Apple is not better, I play games. I can do just as much video editing on a Windows OS Comp as Mac. But back on topic. Windows 7 is DX11 am i correct? Or is Vista also going to recieve 11.

This is cool! Vista is great, so I'll be happy when seven is out.

As a pushing force to WIN7 I would think DX11 will be exclusive to WIN7.

Games will remain in DX9 if they only release DX11 on W7. Microsoft already screwed up by not letting XP people have DX10 - they can't force yet another OS switch so quickly and risk screwing up the PC gaming market even more.
