That would be a very stupid business decision!!! Vista is their latest and greatest. They are not gong to undercut Vista sales doing a retructure of the Hive in XP!!!!! Vista looks nice and has some very intereesting new feature (firewall uploand and download and network stuff) but is a memory hog. I just gone to 2 gigs of DDR2 800 so I'll be okay. The driver issue wiht Vista and DX10 are a big deal as well. I'm sticking with XP and my 7950 for quite awhile!
