I am not a "hard gamer", I just play sometimes with DoD Source (got HL2 with an ATI/Alienware coupon !) or other games... but I must have a good laptop for my job and a good OS and after 10 months, I must say that Vista is a very good OS for my use.
I am an ISP, I work at home and sometimes, I must connect to some networks and for that, Vista Ultimate is what I prefer.
I know, Vista Ultimate is not so Ultimate but it's like Windows XP in the last years : some things are great, some others ugly and other must be better...
Some things in Vista Ultimate are like the Alien Lighting Eyes : it's useless but it's beautiful !
The games run slower with Vista ? Sure but with a BIG laptop like the m9750 with only 1 7950 GTX, the games run much better than on my old laptop (766) !!
SLi is not working with Vista : call Nvidia and ask why they don't have drivers ?
Perhaps did they know too late that Microsoft built a new OS ?
The "Vista Performance and Reliability Pack" announced for a few weeks will correct some things about gamming performances... I hope !
