But many of the DX features VR rely on are at best partially supported in win 8 and not supported at all in win 7.

TorTorden wrote:In my experience, the z97 generation is just barely fully supporting VR, moving to a newer chipsset and DDR4 was the real fix, still not iron clad though, but in essence much more stable.

Roger Wilco Jr wrote:Well, I bit the bullet and installed Win 7 a few weeks ago. My first day playing I went 12 hours - and then had a disconnect. After installing the Rift, I now generally get a disconnect or two within the first several minutes of playing, but then can go hours w/o any more problems. And the disconnects are different. Rather than constantly connecting and disconnecting, making the game completely unplayable, now they are hard disconnects that require a reboot.

I don't know why I didn't do it a year and a half ago, other than I thought I'd need Win10 or DX12 or whatever for VR. But nothing I play now or plan on playing in the near future need any of that. And in a couple years, when there may be new VR hardware and software that will require updating my operating system, I'll have an ancient computer and be ready to upgrade everything at that time.
And now I finally get to play ED again, and starting over, and after so long, it's like learning it all over again.
