The Chief executive of game publisher WildTangent claims that nine out of ten computer games will not work with Microsoft's new Vista operating system.

Alex St. John, told TG Daily that Vista is incompatible with the vast majority of games on the market . He slammed Microsoft for lacking of consumer and developer understanding. St. John said that the reengineering of Vista's security left many developers and their games in the dust. Vista's security needs a new installation routine.

According to the executive, Vista "entirely" lacks security measures that "empower" users and help them make the right decisions.

"They built a house with eight-foot concrete walls and a screen door. That screen door are users. Instead of providing information about potentially dangerous software, the software takes an approach to assume that all software is dangerous and close the door for many developers."

Certainly an interesting tirade from an unhappy developer; do you think the comments are justified?
