Yeh!! I think I can't upgrade............... Who the hell cares about his $550.00 conference. Did you see the new Adobe upgrade requirements? Adobe is getting ready for Direct X 11.

I don't know what the big rush to 11 is for when we don't utilize 10 yet. :confused:

Did you read the replies? Most of the complaints were from Vista haters. :D

LOL... I can't to see their faces when they see windows 7 and realise it's a revamped version of vista. Will they then be happy to stay with XP? Lets face it, vista will only run as good as XP if the hardware is up to scratch eg, 2 or more gigs of RAM and a fairly recent chip/mobo. If you go by the Steam survey, then it soon becomes apparent that there's far more users with single core chips, 512MB RAM, onboard graphics and a system thats about three years old. So if they think waiting for 7 will suddenly make their antiquated systems run like XP they are going to be disapointed again. Plus, it's now become very cool to bash vista altho' many don't understand the arguments...

Yup, I've shots like that before and apart from the odd little tweak it's going to be very much like vista (or so they say). True, vista could do with some of the bloat taken out of it, which is what essentially I think they are doing..
