Carmack blasts Vista gaming initiative:

Quote
While Carmack remains keen on Xbox 360, he thinks the Vista initiative is bogus, accusing Microsoft of using the new OS's "artificial" tie with DirectX 10 to lure consumers (and developers). "They're really grasping at straws for reasons to upgrade the operating system. I suspect I could run XP for a great many more years without having a problem with it," concluded Carmack. Good news for those content with XP.

I linked to that full interview earlier.  He didn't blast Vista.  In fact, he had many good things to say about it.

Exactly, I don't understand why people are saying he's against Vista. He's simply saying you don't need to run out and upgrade right when Vista is released.

I will be a late adopter for Vista for sure.. Microsoft cannot be trusted on release with OS's IMO.

Also, I love how Hardware vendors are all pumped about Vista, and its tougher hardware requirements are ringing the cash registers of their bean counters for increased sales/profits.  Something doesn't smell right about it all, so I will sit on the sidelines and watch the situation unfold. 

I think Vista is way overpriced as well, you can bet I will be seeking creative ways to aquire it, probably sometime after SP1 is released.

I'll just wait til I buy my next PC I think and get it for free. Vista isn't so good at backwards compatibility from all accounts.

This is nothing MS didnt expect out of Europe. Rival companies there have been suing Microsoft every chance they get because of what are (IMO) utterly archaic and illogical EU corporation/business laws. As far as I know, Microsoft pretty much just doesn't pay what the EU tries to make them even when they are found "guilty". Its absurd.

IMO, the EU policy toward MS has always sounded more like extortion than fairness or justice.

Just read any of the beta posts about it. I have been using it for months. I don't really have a lot to say about it though. It's pretty, easy to use for the most part, drivers are still a bit scarce but my 7800 and Creative sound card work fine, as well as the modem drivers. XP software has workered fine for the most part, but it will be awhile before everyone gets everything perfect on Vista. All in all, it's an OS, and nothing to get excited about, but I do like it.

I wish.  Most of us actually live in fear of violating EU rulings.  Or the KFTC rulings.  Or the US rulings.

Yeah.  The EU really has MS bent over a barrel.  They either have to put up with the stupid rulings and fines the EU forces on them, or withdraw from the EU market.  And the latter is not going to happen- even with the fines, they MS is making a lot of money there.

So sadly, despite bending over backwards (they even had to make completely different versions of XP and Vista for the EU), they have to keep paying the EU's dumb fines and fighting in court.
