Vista has not a complete success so far so....

Microsoft always seems to have these grand ideas on doing new things that they get lazy about and poorly implement.

Short answer: No

Long answer: Hell nah.

Crysis, no, but dx10 as a whole, yes. DirectX 10 is still in its infancy and will take time to become fully utilized, like dx9 did. Anyone who knows the inner works of a GPU or DirectX knows that "technically" dx10 offers a lot more promises and should come good over time.

Dx10 is not the problem. The problem is the OS needed to run it which cripples your PC's gaming performance by around 20%. Yes, I know someone managed to get "some" Dx10 features to work on XP but this will not be the case as the software progress'
Even if complete Dx10 compatibility was possible on XP, MS will not allow it, they need at least one thing that XP cant just to encourage people to "upgrade"

You nailed it man. OS is the course of all of this and until Microsoft ports DX10 to vista or just make sure that DX10 is well integrated into Windows 7, things might be good.

Ah, but see, this is N4G, where apparently the only evil corporation is Microsoft and the rest of them are looking out for our best interests.
