Heck, even on a user by user basis, there's little you gain using Vista. I'd be willing to bet that if not for DX10 exclusivity, very few would willingly go out of their way to use it.
Have you used Vista ?
Vista is not just a glorified OS for DX10. Vista is more secure,responsive,better memory management,larger database of drivers for hardware...ETC
Why do people think you need some Pwnage machine for Vista ? I am sitting in my office right now on 1GB of DDR2 and a Celeron 440 @ 2ghz and Vista FLIES....It really does. Most office machines these days have atleast my Spec..not all but alot.
As for people saying Vista is slower, well I just do not know where you are coming from...DONT even try to blame it on '' Oh noes Vista uses up too much RAM'' It doesnt thats called memory management and Vista preloads frequently used apps into memory for FASTER access. If RAM is needed then Vista will unload applications so that others can utilize the free memory. Its a very Dynamic system and it seems most people have not got a clue when it comes to Vista.
Oh and BTW for everyone saying Vista runs slow...well I use it on my Asus EEE with minimal specs...and it runs as fast if not faster than XP...so yeah I know what I am talking about.
