But some hackers from the Alky Project claim otherwise. With a preview build on their website the claim seems to be correct. And if thats the case it becomes clear that the DX10 only being possible for Vista was just a marketing trick. Cody Brocious (part of the Alky team) stated that it would even be possible to run their DirectX10-SDK on OS-X or Linux. Happy gaming folks!"
