What I don't believe is this:
trying to use a few different vid cards out of my old collection (btw, a Voodoo2 in SLI does NOT like vista, in any way whatsoever.) and a few sound cards (Adlib Gold anyone?)
So 12 hours before Vista went to final (for consumers? for businesses?) they wanted a teenager to test some old Graphics cards? Why a teenager? Why wait so late? It's not as if it's fixable at that stage in the product lifecycle.
