Why Vista

Posted by Toad008 On 2007-04-23 2 comments

I'm a gamer, and I have long said the only thing that'll move me over to Vista is the games that work on Vista exclusively, and how pretty DirectX10 can make things look. Which is a laarge part of why this project interests me so much.

This guy is claiming to have reverse engineered the aspects of DirectX10 that make it Vista specific. Meaning, by his claim, "These libraries allow the use of DirectX 10 games on platforms other than Microsoft Vista..."

I hope it's not a hoax / lie. however since 1) I'm at work, and 2) the actual website is getting pounded, I can't investigate these claims for myself.

Since it apparently compiles things down to assembly, I am excited for the potential on non-windows OS's. If I could play DX10 games on Linux, well, I'd be reformatting soon.
