LOL, no a 7600 is not DirectX 10 capable. That's why there's so much hype around the 8000 series - they can run DirectX 10. The hardware has to be DirectX 10 capable, you can't just update some software.
Lets say its a free OS that is being coded right now. It has DX10 support, but no annoying DRM crap and stuff like that. Its a super streamlined gaming/benching OS. Alvino knows what I'm talking about. hint hint: XSOS V3.0 read more about it on Xtreme Systems

For now. Soon ATI will have their R600 core out.

That sounds cool. I'll be following it! Is it legal though? I mean, since Microsoft owns DirectX 10, won't they want it be be exclusive to their products?

Its not illegal, nn_step(the maker) cut a deal with microsoft (ha! firefox thinks microsoft is a typo, and it thinks firefox is a typo too ). Microsoft helped implement all the windows compatibility and DirectX software into the operating system. And the requirements are it is recommended to own at least one legal copy of windows (any version, be it 95, 97, ME, 2000, XP, or Vista) and microsoft wants the source code to be kept secret. This way microsoft software can be used by a greater field of people.

In a year or two, Windows XP will be like Windows 95/98/ME and eventually, 2000; outdated and support ended.
Like I already said, Microsoft has announced that DirectX 10 will be Vista exclusive.

thats beccause DX10 comes standard with vista. even if you don't want to use dx10, but you get vista, you get dx10.

so yeah, its virtually pointless in laptops, but as someone before me said, not many people who game have laptops. those who do do it simply because they are not home enought to game on a desktop.
