DirectX 9.L will be a DirectX 10 for Windows XP

WE MANAGED TO glean a few facts about the upcoming DirectX 9.0 L we told you about here. DirectX 9.0 L is simply a renamed and refurbished DirectX 10 for Windows XP. It will make DirectX 10 games to work on Windows XP

I think the biggest question this raises is why L? Why not V?

They’re giving up on Vist already?

DirectX 9.0 L works on Vista only

UNFORTUNATELY, we were wrong about DirectX 9.0 L.

We managed to confirm the existence of DirectX 9.0L but it won’t be a DirectX 10 for Windows XP. It will be the other way around. It is a faster version of DirectX 9.0 that will run under Vista only.

They’re giving up on Vista already?

Sorry but…
