Paul published an article about gaming on Windows Vista on his SuperSite for Windows:
While Windows Vista is often touted as a more secure, reliable, and better looking operating system than its predecessors, few have found reason to cheer its game-playing prowess. The reason for this is simple: Until very recently, Windows Vista prerelease builds were performance challenged, and game playing was hardly a positive experience. But there's a lot more going on in Windows Vista with regards to gaming than you might think. Indeed, I have little doubt that Windows Vista will quite quickly become the PC gaming platform of choice. You may recall that this wasn't immediately the case with Windows XP, as many gamers stuck with the older Windows 98 for compatibility and performance reasons.
