AMD At an event in Mumbai, soon after the completion of the acquisition of ATI, AMD announced a line of latest Vista-ready ATI Radeon graphic processors. According to Chris Jones, corporate vice president - Windows Core OS Division, "Microsoft will deliver a series of graphics innovations with Windows Vista that provide a customer experience that is second to none. We could not have achieved this without our partnership with ATI. From day one, ATI has played a key role in helping us design and validate the new driver model at the heart of Windows Vista, and ATI has since developed robust and performant drivers that highlight the capabilities of our new operating system."

Maybe you're right, but I don't remember the article mentioning anything about Vista being developer based anything. So in that regard, your comment is just about as irrelevant as my post.

Besides, only about 0.2% of the Windows user population even know what "xml-based api" means, or cares, for that matter. It's still no reason to upgrade when it's released.

Not really, as the more apps developed for Vista, the more use the consumer will get out of it, ergo, more developer support, more happy consumers. The API improvements, the improvements to Direct X (better games, very relevant), the improvements to the UI, they all benefit the consumer, in one way or another so my statement is relevant.
