Because it takes money and manpower to maintain support for an OS, while the number of Vista users is very small.

If performed search on site,not a problem to find 13-12_winvista_64_dd_ccc_whql.exe

More than enough for old Vista. And i think Vista cant support all new features anyways. So new drivers just useless if w/o fixes for some games ,etc. Smoking Kent usually
