Have you ever used it? If you have been using all the other Windows OS's it does take some time to get used to where everything is at. Also I fail to see how your games are more enjoyable with an extra 20 FPS when you are well over 100 anyway. Looks good maybe on some silly FPS screenshot but quite trivial IMO.

Not if you used the "Classic" menus like I always did I think most would agree the layout of Vista is quite different. The good thing is you don't really need to know where things are at as long as you use the search box.
