Yes, unfortunately it is windows 7 and soon to be Windows 8 will use GPU 
for Floating point calculation.

It is very much needed in Linux.

I tried Windows 7 and the Movie playes/ converters are using GPU for 
added speed to the conversions.

I am keeping my eye's out for news about Linux doing the saame as GPU's 
are extremely fast and should be built in to OS's for calculation and 
not just video display
