Default dx 10 not vista only?

check this out.

My opinion, it would be great if that would work. I have some doubts about it, these kinds of things just usually don't work too well. But I'm really looking forward to this, if it works it would be awesome.

It seems to me that it would be like WINE. It will be nice but it won't be able to fully reach the potential unless under Vista. They did a lot of integration between DirectX10 and Vista so I think it would be hard to immitate that on any other OS. Although if they get DirectX10 to work well on Linux then I'm sold.

thats not what they are saying.

ok, theres games like halo 2 which are coming out for ONLY VISTA. they are saying that they are trying to develop a hack for which these games/programs could run on xp.

Well, there's always hope for XSOS if you don't want Vista and this doesn't work...
