That's awesome. I was hoping nVidia would keep a completely unified driver- no more of this 'one driver for G80, another for all other cards' bs. Finally everything in one driver- as it should be. :D

Too bad I don't have Vista. :(

Sure, the Cascades demo in Vista is interesting, but it's nothing to worry too much about. :D
