Default Vista Games

All the Vista games are cool like chess and poker but is there anyway to play them online with other people?

Alright, I have a friend who is trying to run World of Warcraft on Vista and the frame rate just sucks, the game looks choppy and just isnt up to the par that it was on XP. Is this due to the FPS being cut in half? or should he try to run it in XP compatability mode.

How is that an answer? Are you freaking kidding me? LOL.

I've read that Vista is currently worse for games than XP. I think I read it at TomsHardware...

He's talking about games like chess, and solitaire. The ones included with the OS.

Maybe cause the driver support by ATi and nVidia both sucks right now and dont work right on Vista. They also have to wait for the patches from Blizzard to make WoW Vista compatable,
