As expected with any new OS, there are issues. This time it has to do with gaming; something that Vista is supposed to be better at. Games like CounterStrike, Half-Life 2, Doom 3. and F.E.A.R. are all on the list of list of things that just don’t work right.

Games, especially first-person shooters, tend to strain a PC’s graphics capabilities much more than business or even multimedia applications.

Besides the occasional crash, the most common reports appear to be games whose animation speed, measured in frames per second, suffers under Vista.

Experts blame still-flaky software drivers, Vista’s complexity and a dearth of new video cards optimized for Vista’s new rendering technology, DirectX 10.
