Windows 7 Will Receive Some DirectX 11.1 Features After All

Maximum PC: Back in September, Microsoft program manager Daniel Moth indicated during a Q&A session on MSDN that DirectX 11.1 was going to be exclusive to Windows 8, shunning Windows 7 users the same way DirectX 11 initially shunned pre-Windows 7 OSes (it was later made available to Vista and Windows Server 2008). If you were hoping Microsoft would have a similar change of heart and bring DX11.1 to Windows 7, you're in luck. (DirectX 11.1, Gaming, Microsoft, PC, Software, Windows 7)

Ughh, legacy work is the reason Microsoft isnt free to push full force with innovative ideas. It has resulted in a bloated company hauling around its fat ass.
