I'm almost relieved, if I read it correctly, to find that they don't seem to be promising any significant advantages from future use of Vista? Promises of reduced performance seem to be in there, somewhere.

What is a bit of a cheek is the line that you shouldn't expect it to do what it says on the tin. Followed by an inference that the advance blurb shots, the ones that whetted our appetites, owed more to graphic creation than actual FSX performance.

So, nothing new and we've been here before.

The only encouraging thing in the bits I understood was the indication that, despite not being designed to use multicore, it doe use up to 20% of the second core. At least that explains why mine runs faster on one machine than on the other.
