Default Many online games incompatible in Vista

Quote:
"The new Vista operating system has pretty extensive incompatibility with a lot of popular casual games," says the owner of WildTangent, the largest online game-publishing company in the world. He has made what he calls a startling discovery. More than 500 of the web's most popular online games do not work with Vista, affecting more than 70-million Americans who regularly play these downloaded titles.
