Stormrise Vista/DirectX 10 Only

The Artem Kulakov interview on PC Games Hardware excerpts some quotes from an interview with the lead designer on Stormrise, SEGA's real-time strategy game that will be released for PCs later this month. The focus of these quotes is how the game will be a DirectX 10 exclusive, with Artem saying Stormrise was designed for DirectX 10 and Vista from the ground up, and that "Integrating DX10.1 was an opportunity to increase performance and improve visual quality even further." He explains why:

DX10 has offered a lot of advantages over DX9. First of all, DirectX 10 allowed us to simplify the rendering engine. It matches capabilities of next generation consoles better than DX9, which is important for us considering that Stormrise is a multi-platform title. We had fewer driver-specific compatibility issues with Stormrise compare to our previous games released with DX9.

This is great news. I've been running Vista64 on both my laptop and desktop for about a year now and have absolutely loved it. I really hated Vista at first because I had to deal with my customer's issues of incompatibility, etc, but now since it has had time to grow, I've had a big change of heart.

It runs faster than XP ever did, it needs much fewer reboots, it's unbelievably stable, and all of my software works with it. I can definitely say I will never go back to XP.

It's really time for everyone to just move on. People complain about their 8 year old OS losing support, but it can't be supported forever. It's like people refusing to run games in Win95 and were sticking with DOS when Win95 was first released.
