    Probally not.

    When it comes out i am sure Unwinder will take care of it. But right now you have 6+ months to worry about it.

    Nope, just tried to install Rivaturner. Looks like a easy fix. BTW this OS rocks and it is real fast. About to do some 3dmarks soon,,, :D

    yes I can report that Far Cry, BF2,HL2, Vietcong, and pretty much all games run in vista. They do because there is a Nvidia/Ati drivers out. Some programs like nero,rivatuner,yahoo messenger,Norton,windvd,powerdvd,audio drivers are all buggy. Future mark benchmark programs wouldnt work either. Solid OS but just lacking driver support. Just like any new OS. One thing that amazed me is that I didnt get one pop up. So fast too. Twice as fast os as xp windows. But it takes up double resources. That doesnt make sense.

    I have the one that was just released from microsoft to testers. I am a MCSA and I recieved the software about a week ago. I never tried 3dmark2001 because Directx8.1 doesnt matter anymore. Windows Vista is beta 1 and a more rounded version will be released in about 4 months. Not even half of the goodies were included in this build.
