View Full Version : Will BOB work on Vista ?

M$ has officially named what used to be called Longhorn. It's now Vista (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/default.mspx)

Will Oleg make BOB work with this upcoming OS, since both BOB and Vista might be released around the same time ? DirectX 10 or higher might come out that time too.

Its way way way way...way...too early to be asking such questions.

The probable answer is yes. But the name was leaked just in the last 48 hours. Microsoft has barely addressed anything publically regarding the new OS aside from some of the various press releases over the last two years regarding some features that may or may not be part of the OS.

Dang... these guys are quick..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Probably.... in fact I thionk that BioB may wind up being delayed a bit... what with the PPu and Vista on the horizon.... I cant see 1C not taking adsvantage of the new stuff... the problem would come with trying to balance that with XP... I guess if you were running BoB on XP with no ppu then you would have to scale back the settings a tad.... but hey thats cool too.

Vista (or Longhorn as it used to be called) worries me quite a lot. Have you guys read this before?

No reason why it won't... 32bit apps can run on 64bit OS.

MS has always been big (to an excess, sometimes. can you say 'NetBIOS?') on backwards-compatability. Since most of the radical parts of Longhorn (like WinFS) have been cut, I don't see why there would be much of a problem.
