16453874 story DX11 Coming To Linux (But Not XP) 370 Posted by CmdrTaco on Tuesday September 21, 2010 @01:46PM from the speaking-directly-to-you dept. gr8_phk writes "As reported over at Phoronix, the Direct X 11 API now has an open source implementation on top of Gallium3d which should ease porting of games to Linux with or without Wine. While still in its infancy, you can see where this is heading. All this while Microsoft hasn't offered DX11 for their own aging WindowsXP. Could it be that Linux may soon support this Microsoft API better than Microsoft itself?"
