http://www.ggmania.com/#24035 Seems we've been snookered again. All of us who jumped on the Next Gen graphics card bandwagon and paid top dollar for the cards (GeForce 8800/Radeon 2900) are left by the wayside. Even though the features in DX10.1 are negligible, the fact that Microsoft left us in the dust is a little unsettling. So, we may not download 10.1, but what happens with version 10.(a)(b)(c), and so on and so forth. Seems that we've blown our hard earned buck for hardware that can't support the software. So, I guess that I'll be sticking with XP instead of installing Vista when SP1 hits the streets.
