    Early last year MS said that DX10 would ONLY be available to Vista. I think that was to get Vista to sell more to gamers, but since no hardware or software giant adapted to DX10 that quickly, how could they it wasn't even finished until recently, they had to change their game plan.

    I still highly doubt M$ will give XP DX-10. THey have proven that once they put out a new OS that the last generation quickly becomes unsupported and gets minimal attention. Besides, there is nothing to stop them from basically telling us "If you want DX-10 get Vista".

    casecutter, i wouldn't go as far as that. They just extended their support for XP for ANOTHER 5 years. That's 10 years from yesterday.

    Just because they say they will support it, does not mean they will keep their full attention on it. SP3 was supposed to be out already, and that has been pushed off for another year+. I have no faith that M$ will keep their word and properly support XP and I have even less faith they will give XP DX-10.
