Yup, we couldn’t believe what we were reading; but the case scenario has been put into simple English for us all to understand. Windows Vista is certainly not ready for you dedicated gamers. READ THE DEBACLE HERE.
I, personally, have been waiting since Christmas to see when my gamer fiance could play Neverwinter Nights II again with me. It was before Xmas that he got this really bright idea to install the Beta Windows Vista Operating System; we were both pleasantly impressed by the OS and oohed and aahed about for some time. But it’s been over 3 weeks now and ONLY less than 2 weeks until the OS offcially launches and to date, the drivers are just not ready.
My fiance is now considering uninstalling the OS and reverting back to Windows XP so that we can at least share some prime time together and not endanger our further bonding because of Microsoft’s incabilty to deliver the required drivers for gamers of the new operating system.
According to this report, “So for gamers hoping to install and run Vista Ultimate this is certainly a disappointment.”; I’d like to add that IslandGamers forgot to put it this way: “So for gamers hoping to install and run Vista Ultimate this is certainly an ULTIMATE disappointment”. Further: “They said themselves that they are being forced to leave out several optimisations and performance tweaks just to deliver a stable product.” Uuuuhhh, that doesn’t seem to make much sense, does it?
Sounds like MAC OS10 has the last laugh because in my personal opinion, Windows Vista is just a damn cool copy of that operating system; yeah some things better and a few new bright ideas but wait!…. MAC OS10 is ULTIMATELY stable and Windows is trying to create a cool repeat but not on an intrinsically stable platform. If they’d been individual enough to start an absolutely new trend from scratch, then maybe they would have had MAC trying to copy them instead. But that’s just my humble opinion, ahem.
Read IslandGamers.com article for the real deal of what’s awaiting you gamers if you go ahead with this new OS which seems to be way behind meeting the goals before launch time. It’s an utter mess as far as we are concerned; a ‘debacle‘ as put so nicely by IslandGamers.
