"The box, website and all the merchandising made it very clear that this was THE card for Vista and that it was "Vista Ready" etc." It is for Vista, and it is Vista ready, but Vista isn't 'ready.' Get it??? Good It just boils down to the age-old-whining-no-good-for-nothing-eating-from-the-Microsuck-hand-that- feeds-them-anti-social-recluse-hermit-avatar-of-the-geek-culture nerds who can't wait for something to 'come out,' or 'finish,' because they can only bite their nails for too long until they taste the blood from their gnawing down to the fingertips. I am glad that the driver aren't ready personally. Time wise it works out perfect for me. I am still waiting on my DVD box set of Ultimate Vista and I'm in the process of putting another 8800 card in my rig. At this rate, by the time I get Vista, I'll have been able to benchmark and tinker with the 8800, and then run Vista on the second machine with the other 8800 and compare the differences in real time. There will probably be some sort of drivers available, and not only will I get to see the visual difference (if any..I think people misunderstand the point of Vista+DX10 benefits) but I'll be able to test and analyze stability. If it's terrible, then oh well, it's a work in progress. Just like you being weened off your mom's tit... Now go play with a weak ATI+Intel rig or something.
