Valve's ongoing hardware survey on Steam received an update today and they netted some interesting results. With over 1 million unique samples, the survey gives a neat insight on the number of different hardware setups used around the world.
Not really surprising, you could do the same thing with almost anything somewhat new.
Who's surprised? The people who take part in Steam Survey's like me are PC gamers, gamers dont want Vista, M$ promised it as the new gaming platform that will increase how well your games/hardware run, unfortunately, like alot of M$ promises, it turned out to be a complete lie!
Vista was supposed to be the new horizon, but proved more of an obstacle. A great many PC users who are tech schooled avoid Vista like the plague. I have a bit of Vista experience myself. After 2 months of a factory installation on my laptop, Vista ate my antivirus, and corrupted my touchpad drivers on my laptop. I since reformatted it and installed Windows XP. Since then it's worked very well. I will not deny that Vista works for some people, but for me as well many others, it failed miserably.
Yeah vista is a work in progress for the moment. I think I will wait till the 2nd service pack before i reinstall it again.
