    The bright side is there probably wont be any DX12 only games before the Windows 7 extended support end in 2020.

    I'll worry in half a decade :).

    Or maybe we will see a repeat of the 3Dfx Glide / Direct3D war from the late nineties.

    Which sadly ended in nVidia buying up 3dfx Interactive... which i consider cheating :).

    Well they didn't get dx10 to work in xp either. It's time people show those greedy companies a lesson and start using a good linux distro and put MS offside.

    I was a 3dfxgamer, it sucked. But 3dfx screwed the pooch on themselves. NV at least gave them some money to pay their bills lol

    Don't get it. You mean Vista was w7 beta.
    BTW: Each new OS from M$ has got a new DX version. But they only talk of it when it is an integer version no. update and when degrading the current market leader 7 by denying an update.
    This is no innovation!
