so does this mean that I can play games that need vista to play? even if I dont have vista? will the dx9 supported gfx cards play the new dx 9L? or do we still have to buy the g80 ?

You will still have to buy DX10 compliant cards. You can emulate it though, but it would be choppy as hell.

Since Dx 9.L is an emulation layer (see the "L") it will be only an interface between the Dx 9.0c (sm3.0) we all have and a Dx10 game. With it's help we'll be able to play Dx10 titles on our current cards.

*FEAR: by saying Vista only I suppose they meant Dx10 only, imagine that until the next summer only a small minority would have migrated to Vista, so why should they tie themselves to only one OS?
