    MS are releasing Halo 2 to be compatible with Vista only. A sign of things to come? How long before MS drops support for XP? Given that they only stopped supporting Windows 98 fairly recently, I hope it's a while yet 'cause no way I'm forking out for Vista.

    Given the massive differences between the two OSs, is it likely that software developers will have to release seperate versions for XP and Vista?

    Well when I read it I was under the impression it would be on Vista and Vista only...no other versions of Windows at all. MS wont drop support for XP for at least another 5 or so years maybe more. I mean they only dropped support for 98 about a year ago I think. And since Vista will be requiring hungry hardware you bet your a$$ they wont make XP versions of games such as Halo 2...hmmm wonder what Doom 4 would be like then?

    Me neither.

    I don't understand why not, just because you don't have Vista, doesn't mean you don't have a rig capable of playing the latest and greatest games. I for one don't want to fork out £100+ for a new OS just to play a £30 game.

    On the other hand, I'd put good money on Halo 2 being cracked to play on XP within a week of its release. :)
