Microsoft promised much more efficient gaming and more performance with their new OS. They lied.

"In the end, it looks like the the new, bulky, poorly supported operating system is at the root of it all."

XP still beats Vista in every game except one rare case.

Yea I read that earlier. However the article did not use the most recent Vista drivers, so the performance difference might have shrunken a bit.

I didn't read the article. I expect the new Vista design will fruit as soon as a threshold is reached (probably a critical mass of DX10 games).

Well, I went back to XP for my store baught PC. The lil' Sempron just couldn't handle Vista all that well. The new computer will be here within a month and it will have a much better processor than a Sempron 3400.
