Windows Vista is too slow, would eat a plethora of resources and Direct3D 10 could not prevail, and is in many places was the verdict. For the Vista successor Windows 7, the Redmond company is now promising to make everything better. And judging by the feedback from the first beta version after, this promise seems not too far-fetched from.Windows 7 is clearly faster than Vista, is a conclusion of the beta testers.
