If you understand what that means, then you know the ball is all in MS' court (and they don't want to let the GMA900 play). Good example is GMA900 and Vista Aero support. In early 2006 when Vista Aero first came out, requirements were: DX9, PS2 and 128MB VRAM (still they are same, except of course the WDDM driver). Of course, people have their opinions. https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/user-community-for-visual-computing/topic/305190
All I get is an unbootable, frozen computer with Vista installed. A central scheduler dynamically dispatches threads to pipeline resources, to maximize rendering throughput (and decrease the impact of individual pipeline stalls.) However, due to the scalar nature of the execution units, video memory through DVMT scheme, 1.6GPixels/s and 1.6GTexels/s fill rate, a max.

GMA 3650 Similar to the GMA 3600, but this version is clocked at 640MHz. It is found in Atom N2800, Atom D2550, Atom D2500, Atom D2600 and Atom D2700 models. I am running a Dimension 4700. It has pixel and vertex shaders which only support Shader Model 2.0b features, and the vertex shaders are still software-emulated. Its display cores can run up to 333MHz on GM965 and 320MHz on GL960.

Whether MS gave intel Vista requirements early on or not, if they had just put a little bit more effort in to making a decent card, this wouldn't have happened. Check the first reference he gave, (link below), foil 19, top bullet (and 3 sub-bullets).
They are commonly found on netbooks, low-priced laptops and desktop computers, as well as business computers which do not need high levels of graphics capability. That probably won't happen until Vista ships, however. In January 2008, Intel released the complete developer documentation for their, at the time, latest chipsets (965 and G35 chipset), allowing for further external developers' involvement. In April 2009, Intel released Version 22.214.171.1240 for Windows 7.

I'm still not sure why Intel wont release a WDDM driver for it (heard somewhere that it is missing some hardware scheduling feature, but I don't buy that story). Hello out there?

Yes you could argue over the importance of that wee little 'feature'.
Subsequently, OS X Mountain Lion dropped 32-bit kernel booting. Ark.intel.com. Intel has released production version drivers for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows Vista that enable the Aero graphics. Intellinuxgraphics.org.
One of the cards compared is an nVidia GeForce FX 5200 and guess what?
