Microsoft quietly releases first glimpse at DirectX 10

If you like games or 3-D graphics on Windows, this will be of interest to you.

BTW, some of you know and some of you don't, but I made a major upgrade (mobo, RAM, video card and cpu) to my computer on Monday and therefore a clean install of Windows. I'm pleased to report that even with doing all my Windows Updates on dial-up I'm now to the point where I have time to blog again :-)


  1. Congratulations Gail! Did you use a slip streamed install?? Do you love the AMD 64? :)

  2. Thanks Jane!

    The answers are in order, yes and yes ;-)

    BTW, because I did have SP2 slipstreamed in, I could install directly to my onboard SATA. Also, my SATA drives are now truly hot swappable -- they appear under the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the system tray. Not that I would ever have a need to hot swap them, but it is so cool to see it is able to work as advertised.
