DirectX 10 for Windows XP was cancelled a loong time ago. Notice how the date on that article is July of last year.

Just aguess, but methinks that the dev team got to looking an realized that M$ had made absolutely sure that DX10 COULDN"T be made to work with XP without so thoroughly degrading performance that it just wasn't worth it.

I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.

if I remember right with the project I saw regarding directx10 on xp is it wasn't true dx10 but rather an emulated version of it so to speak. it took directx10 commands and then hooked them up with their directx9 equivs and displayed them from there. at least this is an article I saw about it a bit ago and I do remember they made a comparison to quake with this as well when using the direct3d wrapper they used to make that work.
