Re: EAX not supported in Vista
This is basically microsoft dumping Direct3D. Not only will EAX be disabled in hardware, but so will anything else like A3D, Miles, etc. Basically, if you have lots of DirectSound games and a hardware-based card, don't upgrade.
Note that this is only for games that use DirectSound. The newer games that use OpenAL will continue to operate as they should.
