Please.

Will you people drop the "hefty requirements" argument already? Refuting it is getting to be too painful to bear.

Heftier than XGL/AIGLX, it seems.

It also does a hell of a lot more than XGL/AIGLX. In any case, by the time Vista is out later this year, anyone who has a system that is overall Vista-worthy will have at least a Radeon 9XXX/GeForce FX original or equivalent. Even Intel's GMA950 is capable of a lot of Vista effects.

Vista requirements are exaggerated. So it won't run on your Voodoo 3 ... boo hoo.

I'm sure we could all run Windows XP on 128 MB of RAM, but of course, no one does. Why? Because getting the OS up and running is one thing, but getting it up and running, installing software and using it on a regular basis is something entirely different.
