It's new version of Microsoft Windows. It may come out some time this year or next year.

Looks like a multimedia OS.

Neverheard of a game pushing a new OS before... usually they push you get new hardware for your current OS.

That's a new marketing approach... you have to get all new hardware, to run the OS, so you can play the new game. Genius!

Why not? No matter how you don't like the idea, Halo is owned by Microsoft, anyway. :-?

I know they are under the same roof and have no doubt there will be some people who will buy Vista just to play Halo. I don't understand why they would put such a short leash on the second version of this game. Halo (1) was a huge success and it ran on 98/Me/2000/Xp. :stone:
