So you would expect all or most of the gamers are using Vista for their gaming platforms with dual,triple and quad core CPUs with globs of memory attached to Video cards with GPUs that are computers themselves.. It is not so according to this article. These people, who are the front line users to use the latest and the greatest all the time are sticking with XP it seems.
