What it all comes down to for me (And I'm willing to bet, for most diehard PC-only gamers) is the fact that from here on out, most, if not all, PC games will be Vista only...or have several key features that are Vista only.

Shadowrun, Halo 2 and Fable 2 are all going to be Vista only. Now, while I can live without those three piles of shiite, I keep wondering how far it will go. Could Diablo 3 be Vista only? World of Warcraft 2? Neverwinter nights 3? Elder Scrolls 5? I can't help but wonder how long an XP user has left until they are forced to upgrade.

Vista wouldn't worry me so much if it wasn't so bloated and RAM hungry. Or if it would let me run AVG anti-virus. Or if it didn't take up a gig of RAM just idling there.

If people want to upgrade to it and follow MS down the path to the PC Gamer paradise they're building, fine, You have my blessing. I just don't think locking out all previous windows versions from the get-go just because you want to force people into upgrading is very fair.

At least it wasn't until about 4 years after 2000 hit that you started seeing "XP only" on all the game boxes.
