I work all night, I work all day, to pay the bills I have to pay
Ain't it sad
And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me
That's too bad
In my dreams I have a plan
If I got me a wealthy man
I wouldn't have to work at all, I'd fool around and have a ball...

Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man's world
Money, money, money
Always sunny
In the Bill Gates world.

Games already use system ram to store textures from and to vram. Problem is, system ram is much slower.

There is minimal to no kernel difference between win 7 and 8. Porting dx11.2 to win 7 will probably be a matter of removing registry entry check.

Keep pouring the gasoline on that fire, Microsoft. Developers will simply switch to other APIs rather than limit their market. Your days of dominating the PC gaming industry with forced upgrade cycles are numbered. Good riddance.

Hey, Ballmer: you said you were taking out the trash this week. Why haven't you fired yourself yet?
