    It might be a bit early for us to be talking Windows 7 feature cuts, but that said, isn't it a bit early for Microsoft to be talking Windows 7 feature cuts? If The Inquirer's "reliable sources" are to be believed, Microsoft is giving DirectX 11 the boot from its next version of Windows to keep hardware requirements down -- apparently the DirectX 10 requirements of Vista were enough of that sort of trouble for one decade. Obviously there's no official word on Microsoft at the moment, so we'll reserve judgment for the time being -- and hey, maybe no DirectX 11 wouldn't ruin our year -- but with the endless quantity of features cut from Vista still fresh in our memory, this is certainly not an encouraging sign if true.

    Well, you can't really trust the Inq, so this may not be true.

    Anyway, DX10 is not required for vista, I have a RAGE M3 in my laptop and it runs Vista, though it doesn't play any good games (only Counter Strike 1.6) and doesn't have AERO. So they may do the same with 7, add DX11 for the people that van run it.
