Microsoft says no DirectX 11.1 for 7 users

Seems Redmond is using more strongarm tactics to sell Win8. Who would have thunk it?

What a horrible move, many people are using 7 and don't want to upgrade to 8.(which in my opinion looks crippled) I assume newer games will still work with dx11.0 though since 11.1 doesnt sound major.

Micro$not seems bound and determined to drive customers away from Windows.

That's bad considering Windows 7 is an excellent OS, shame they are that intent on shifting to win8, MS is starting to get on my nerves.

They may drive them away but it won't necessarily be to Windows 8. How about open like some form of Linux. I am already considering it.

At some point the MUST rethink their marketing strategy. If Win8 don't works as they want they will be forced to do so, or everyone will stop upgrading their systems.

MS already has the Vista experience where everyone favored XP, I doubt they want another similar failure, and it seems that 8 is going to be the next Vista.

Microsoft will use every dirty trick in the book to try to get people off of Windows 7 and on to Windows 8. This is just the beginning. A few bad Windows 7 Updates and a story that Windows 8 doesn't have this kind of problem is in the future.

Not even wth Vista did they use this dirty trick, but the DirectX trick they did allright.
So far none of us own a DX 11.1 graphic card, and we still have to see if it is a rare product like ATI's Dx10.1 was, or if it really does matter in later games.

Microsoft, WE DO NOT WANT YOUR WINDOWS 8 IN ITS PRESENT FORM!!!

Speaking of AMD, a Radeon HD 7970 is a DX11.1 card.

Not much out there to exploit that, yet.
