- DOS to DirectX and Beyond

DirectX, an API we've grown well accustomed to over the years. Hell, I bet most of us (particularly gamers) couldnt survive a single day without having it installed on our machines. But just WHAT is DirectX? How does it work and why did it become the unquestionable standard so soon after DOS was phased out? these answers and more are all within D-Silence's latest article, also taking you for a trip through DirectX's past, present, and future.


With the recent release of version 9.0c, DirectX once again takes its place in the spotlight. I thought I would use this occasion to review what makes DirectX tick.


It also occurred to me the other day that DirectX, and it's various versions, has a great impact on many aspects of Windows computing...affecting much more than just our gaming experience and yet, has managed to stay quite low on most user's radar.
