Windows 7
« on: February 06, 2009, 04:41:55 am »

I opened V0.97 in Windows 7 64 bit and it is working great. I have not had an error.

Really, how great, how many polygons before any noticeable lag?
This is great, M$ is finally following the right path.

easy to assume microsoft is doing better. The api doesn't change much. I would place money on the video card being a good choice ;)

just out of curiosity.... will the pissed off vista users (like me, unfortunately) get a free update or do we have to pay. I personally believe we should be reimbursed for the damages from this horrible concoction they call "VISTA".

jdonzae, your issue is a matter of opinion.  Some people like vista, and have had no issues, some hate it.  You probably wont get a free update, though then again you never know.  Remember though, they still have to make profit to be able to continue improving.

I doubt it, as a 'New OS', 7 will probably be sold like all the others have, but Vista wasn't that bad.

BTW: jdonzae, your opinions are better off at an official Microsoft/Windows forum, if there is such a thing, where they can 'hear' you, not in an art forum ;)

7 is basically a Vista without the bugs, and they took off all the unnecessary bits to speed it up a bit.

They would probably allow you to have a discounted upgrade (They would lose about 75% of their profits if they gave it away free [If they never got Vista, they probably wouldn't get Windows 7]).

Anyway, Vista isn't that bad. The only downside I have ever ran into is that it takes about 700 MB of RAM by itself.

They just did a bit of stream-lining and compatibility stuff. 

And yes, Windows 7 will be compatible with all Vista Drivers, at least until companies start releasing drivers specifically for that OS. 

I am glad to hear that it runs just fine though :D.
