Just seems like more and more reasons to add to my list for not buying Vista any time soon. Backwards compatibility in Vista when it comes to games seems horrible and it's not just because of Nvidia beta drivers. Saying that Vista is better for games is misleading. It will be better for games that are designed for Vista and that seems like about it. Also the fact that I would have to get rid of my beloved Audigy 2 and swap it for an expensive X-FI just to even be able to use EAX which almost every game I have supports is just lame. Seems like Microsoft wants to kill Creatives' dominance of the sound card market and diminish support amongst developers to use EAX. Windows Vista is the biggest excuse to get people to buy new pc parts the pc industry has ever done. Consider this, Vista requires powerful hardware to run. That hardware requires more juice to run. As more and more people start to use Vista, power consumption around the world will go up. Thus, pollution would increase globally because of the increased required output to power all these Vista computers. No thanks Microsoft, I'll stick with an OS that is not broken and isn't so advanced that it's not compatible with anything else.
