Yup, all the vista drivers work in Windows 7. Most don't know the difference since the internal number is 6.1 and Vista is 6. They install without making any fuss.

Maybe a full windows 98se virtual install built in.
Even the Mac will not run a significant amount of their earlier stuff. Linux, sure, if you have the source and are a developer.

Cool, then I may try it out.
Hmm...then why did ATI release Windows 7 beta drivers? What's the point?

no idea, it's irrelevant. Maybe they figured their users wouldn't figure out that Vista drivers work just fine. LOL.

Im using the recently leaked 185.20 (Vista x86) in Windows 7 7000 without a hitch.
