Even so, Windows 8 only ships with an extension update rather than a new revision of Directx so it's not as if we'll face the same dilemma found with DX10 which limits a game to a certain operating system given how small extension updates are.

Whether it would come and bite Windows 7 in the ass with DX12 and if it can entice both studios and consumers to use Windows 8 is an entirely separate matter...that is, if DX12 ever comes to fruition while W8 is the current offering from MS.

Also, I've not really been keeping up on the Linux front but I thought Linux was better with OpenGL over DX? Would they need to somehow convert the library to run on OpenGL (which I am sure would require a complete rewrite) or is DX in a better position on that platform?
