Age of Conan - Before I leave...

Hey...you know that issue with Age of Conan, DX10 and an LCD TV..that the mouse does not work, and certain resolutions are broken if you use just one cable for display?
(The only way it would work is if you had two cables hooked up to the same LCD TV)

Did you know that on Windows 7, this issue does NOT exist? Also, the issue where AoC will crash sometimes when exiting from a DX10 session? GONE!!

When I return from my hiatus, Vista is going Bye, Bye...a Memorial Day Project if I ever saw one!!

Say Hello to Windows 7 (and...anyone using Vista should do the same!!)

Cheers

Windows 7 is good, but Vista works well now on most gaming PCs and I see no reason at this time to upgrade, especially if the prices of Windows 7 don't come down drastically or Microsoft doesn't offer a cheap upgrade path from Vista to 7.

I think the "Free" to Vista customers deal will change minds on that..

Of course, anyone buying a system before their allotted time, misses out.

But, from everything I have seen, Vista is the new ME.
It does too many "stupid" things that just annoy me.
Wireless mice and keyboards are less effective.
Overall performance is slower.
It constantly forgets your desktop settings, randomly arranging icons at will.
Games support has been shoddy at times.
Hard to find where to do things compared to Vista (like changing attributes for certain features)

No, I am of the mind EVERYONE should leave Vista as soon as possible.

Cheers

I'm disappointed that Microsoft are abandoning Vista so quickly. Most people haven't even switched over from XP yet. I think this tendancy to constantly bring out new systems that don't meet what the public actually want is doing to be Microsoft's downfall.

How are you using Windows 7? Is it out for beta?

It is a free download actually, for use until 2010.
Look for Release Class Windows 7 in Google.
Customer Preview is available for all to play with.
