I hope Windows 7 is going to be what they say: as Vista should've been. Nice article Kalos.

kalos3397d ago

Thank you. I'm glad of the praise. Should be fun to see how things pan out in the end of it all when the game is released, but I'm happy Xordiah didn't yell and throw stuff at me when I asked her for her help :D Fact for the all: Don't upset your Blizzard Rep, feed them chocolate instead!

Cogo3397d ago

Yes, the article is nice. And if Windows Seven is NOT what Vista should be, I think we'll all start buying macbooks or learning Linux...

Dorjan3397d ago

I agree! Windows users are really starting to lose faith.

I just hope that windows 7 really does do what windows should be doing.

Leord3397d ago

Hehe, I'm trying to delay buying a new PC until the new Windows is out. Unfortunately, I assume that even if it's very well made, it will still be a while before bugs are weeded out. I am not traditionally an early adapter, I want things that work!

W7 is an improvement of vista, heard it may actually be good.

@1.4

I think if you buy a Vista PC now, you get to upgrade to W7 free when its released, I done that with my XP PC, bought it late and get Vista mailed to me :)

I did what I could with this article, sadly I'm pressed for time with other things right now. Hopefully this helps a great deal of people, its why I think up and write these things.

Leord3397d ago

It was actually quite useful, very nice.

Cogo3397d ago

Yes, it's good. I don't think I've seen an article from that author that wasn't good.

Leord3397d ago

It's quite interesting to get an insight in exactly how things like OS compatibility works for older games.

I just say that because I like to play lots of old games, including SC1 and HoMM3 =)

kuangtu3397d ago

I'm not really into Tech, but my experience is some DOS games are hard to run on Vista and sometimes XP. I love some of those games, they are simple and full of memories. I hope Win7 is more compatible with all the old applicants and games.

kalos3397d ago

Iknow what you mean. Nothing like booting up Xcom or Monkey Island One even on Windows Seven Beta just to enjoy the good old times.

kuangtu3397d ago

thanks. of course we always can find some way to make things work but it's not really convenient. Some of my favorite softwares doesn't work on Vista. I need to install XP again to some other section of my HD. =/

Leord3397d ago

Yeah, the DOS box and other software are not 100% compatible with Vista. but that's what we're all whining about anyway =P

Vista is just not up to par.

Azymn3397d ago

DOS games generally run fine in DOSBox, even on Vista x64 (which I have). Sometimes they need tweaking, but you can almost always get them up and running. I use it for Master of Orion 2.

woot. It's finally out.

I think SC2 will be fine on Win7 if Blizzard want this game last as long as SC1.

Leord3397d ago

As Blizzard say themselves, it's the way they have handled previous operating systems =)

Fyzzu3397d ago

Eh, should work okay then, even if they're not saying it in so many words.

kalos3397d ago

Indeed. I saw it as not wanting to commit themselves to supporting until it has been tested through and through on at least the Release Candidate to know that it'll work without problems, but they'll be doing everything they can (and shouldn't take much effort if any as the article explains) to make sure that Starcraft II works not just with what we have now but what is going to be the mainstay of OSs in the very near future.
