Mostly, yes. Some no. Or it might not worth the trouble making those work on Vista. Officially, Windows 7 is out next year. So Id' rather wait for that one. That version will bring also DirectX 11. So, it's a process to wait and see about backward compatibility(everybody appreciated that on XP and it might be back in the Windows7).

Not necessarily. I think it's going to be a transition period. Hell, most people are still on XP, using DirectX 9.0c. If you remember, it was also a long transition period from DirectX 6 to DirectX 8 and from DirectX 8 to DirectX 9.0c. I don't see why things would be any different now.

better off anyways to just stick with XP right now, easyer that way.
