Microsoft to "encourage" use of ECC memory for Vista - Page 2

post #11 of 23
i'm still getting vista because i'm sure that gamers make up most of the profit they will get for that Ultimate edition or whatever its called.

why the hell would they release a slower OS if what everyone wants these days is speed?

Game makers are going to lose a lot of money if they dont.

Many people aren't going to run out and buy Vista right away. If game developers move to DX10 and dont give it XP support, they are going to lose a lot of money until Vista becomes the "OS Standard", like XP is right now.

Maybe Vista is so unstable it needs ECC RAM to even run
