I've already bought the game, because it's CC and any work for CC should be supported ;), but I have a question about the fog.

I do find it annoying for the simple reason that you improved the look of the game by having higher res graphics and better resolution support but the fog just hides all of this. So I don't get to enjoy it. I know the upcoming patch will give the option to disable it. Does the fog actually affect gameplay, and if so, how?

Thanks!

Yes, the fog does effects game play.  Air support is not available during fog turns, and during battles your spotting range is limited.  This remains in effect even if you visually turn off the fog graphics.

The latest update is also available for register users: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3273415

Thanks for the reply. Does fog affect LOS? You mentioned spotting, but I don't know if they are considered the same.

Thanks again!

Yes, line of sight / spotting are effected.  You'll get a 'sight blocked' LOS line from the fog even if terrain is not in the way.
