  • Backward compat interfaces are there, just like in the latest version.  In the extremely rare case there is a breaking change, you will see it in the docs.

  • I fully agree that backwards compatability is a basic requirement of both the individual technologies as well as the OS as a whole. I've also not seen anything to indicate that backwards compatability will be broken by Windows Vista. Current (and older) versions of DirectX will get re-routed via updated interfaces (graphics and audio has changed substantially under Vista) and will work just fine...

    I'm not too sure what you mean by a "DirectX Compatability Program" though? Would you elaborate?

    Cheers,
