The beta won't be for another week at least. With people being contacted before then. Possibly.

I use 2000 for mainly the same reason. (There are loads of other stupidities in XP too.)

Heh, When vista comes out, You can no longer play games. Hehehe. DX10 is vistsa only, Which means any DirectX10 game will not run on Xp or less. It *MAY* un on XP, If microsoft makes an emulation of it. Which they said they would.

No. You can play HL2 on a computer that can only run DX6, it just looks hideous. DX10 games will rarely not have backwards compatibility modes, they just will only look the best they can in DX10, and will preform more smoothly in that environment then other less robust environments.

Actually thats quite easy to switch that dog of and enforce W2K search style.
Its the first thing i do when reinstalling.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CabinetState]
"Use Search Asst"="no"
Ah, okay, guess I'll grab a copy from the RZ tomorrow, then.

That is assuming developers are willing to make games that only run on a tiny subset of the computers out there instead of going for a MUCH bigger market and making their games compatible to both. It's commercial suicide to make a game that will only run on PCs bought within the last few months.

According to MS DX10 changes so much that there is no compatibility between it and earlier versions, a game needs to use two different code pathes in order to run under both. Not like that's going to be a big hurdle, many games already use both OpenGL and Direct3D under Windows and it won't take long until SDL will support DX10 as well.
