My guess is they will be just like dx10 cards but with dx11 support

There were similar news before DX10 was out stating how good DX10 will be, but it seems that DX10 is really a big joke and overhyped

Yes, and all those DX10 games can run on DX9 video cards

And to be fair, I said nothing about Vista and the time it took to install the OS. I was panning on the time it took to experiment with new dx versions and I related the "entertainment value" based on Black and White 2, TrackMania, Team Fortress 2 and Peggle Extreme which are all games... so, one might be able to guess that I was referring to the "dx10 game finding/playing" being the time consumer.... not installing the OS. I have Vista installed in a virtual machine... and no it's not hard to install. I leave it on a PC in case friends and/or clients have questions so that I can refer to it. Difficulty levels of installing OS types was never in question... it's the time... time time time. Something I have very little of.

But, going to back to the time reference... 99% of my business relationships include XP. My job requires 2000/2003/Linux servers and 2000/XP clients. There is nothing else that I can get out of Vista other than a resource for informational purposes, nor is there anything else that I want. Going back to my original statement, I'm very satisfied with the 9c game vault that I have and that I look forward to playing in my free time.... I have no need for 10 (right now ) I'm sure that eventually, once I have more time and once things looks promising for 11... I'll hop on the train. But, I'm not going to stand around and wait for a train that isn't coming for a long time

Which was exactly my point as to why dx11 wont be mainstream for a LONG time

Oh my god, maroon1 has just said something, and I'm agreeing with it 100%

Yeah, when you compare screenshots of DirectX 10 games using DirectX 10 vs DirectX 9.0c, you almost never see an actual difference, unless you look REALLY hard.

but, seeing as how Windows 7 is much better liked in general than Vista on release, perhaps it might be what DirectX 11 needs to take off.
