Enterprise pretty much summed it up...

If it is discovered that DX10 can be done in XP, there will be so many lawsuits flying around.

Bill Gate$ will have those people killed! Thats gonna spell CLASS ACTION lawsuit against Micro$oft. Think of all the people and business's that upgraded for compatibility reasons. Then theres the whole, "oh, that graphics card isn't Vista capable, soooo you'll have to buy a new one."...this could snowball into a big steaming turd for Gates/MS.... ROFL!!

Wow, If this is true then those countless hours trying to get OC'ing programs and Drivers to work with Vista will be a total loss, as I will revert back to XP. I'm going to mail Bill Gates and tell him I want those hours of my life back.

If they fail, they'll be horribly embarrassed. If they succeed they'll be sued and Alky will be shut down and outlawed. Microsoft won't allow this. And 1 more comment : I know Microsoft knows that it can be done they just lied to stop the rants of people wanting DX10 on XP, did anyone actually believe them here?

I think there would be a huge deal of lawsuits if they could make DX10 run on DX9 hardware. Because if it is "DX10" its impossible. It would be a scam.

Basically anyone who bought a 8 series card would have a valid lawsuit.



And yes I agree this will never happen because Microsoft won't allow it. They'll just sue them.

Isn't America nice? Sue sue sue sue!

I couldn't have said any of this better myself.

The sad thing is, it's usually the richer people suing the poorer people with overpriced lawyers... thank God for lawyers that do pro bono...
