Confused They just want money.Greedy.At least it was already my plan to run vista.The thing that worries me,is that FSX will take directx10,and if that only runs on vista,in other words,that means you WILL need vista for fsx.

Thanks WM, I had been wondering about that. Looks like many of us will soon be full time vista beta-testers.

Now, now. I'm a Microsoft stockholder, but to put things in perspective, have you considered that DirectX10 needs hooks into the OS tha XP can't provide?

If you belive that DX 10 could not be ported over to XP,then I guess that the world is realy flat Wink

MS is in the money making business and it seems to be doing OK.World domination for Bill and MS ? I dont think so,keep your eye out for new operating systems from some unexpected companies
The above is still bad news for gamers as these new O/S will probably not support high end games for some time

Greed will kill off MS Cheers!

The other possibility is that the article above is nothing but FUD (fear, uncertainty, doubt).

Until it all plays out, we won't know.
