Oh, I know the initial reference above isn't about World of Warcraft.So Microsoft had a little launch of its own yesterday (why can't they do these things at midnight like normal people?), and reader Scott Harris wrote in with a relevant question: "Has anyone tried to see how compatible WoW is with Windows Vista?" If the above banner snagged at CES is any indication, the fun is only beginning -- then again, something tells me they weren't thinking about Warcraft.
I'm not gonna lie -- I have zero plans to upgrade my XP box to Vista anytime soon, mostly because I'm primarily a Mac person (yes, flame on, people, flame on) and the thought of doing the upgrade to the only Windows box in the house sounds about as fun as major surgery to me. However, the trusty intertubes contain some accounts of compatibility, and so far the reports are mixed:
WoW + Vista = poor frame rates.
No way n00b, it's totally faster!
l2computerz people, Vista really has no effect on WoW performance.
Since the jury appears to still be out, we're leaving it up to you, dear readers -- has anyone had experience getting Vista and World of Warcraft to play nice? Any experiences to report?
I actually find it amazing how Microsoft managed to brainwash the faithful.
For instance - they think it's a major deficiency of OS X that Apple doesn't offer five or six different versions of the operating system to chose from like Vista does.
Where is the logic in that?
BTW - these are US prices; Tiger is $129.-
