    Always nice seeing 32 bit being dropped. People won't make a move to change if they don't have to. Most people these days running a 32 bit OS have a 64 bit compatible CPU.

    As for DX10, I don't see that as much of a loss. That seemed to be the most ignored version of DX (by both hardware and game developers), to my recollection.

    I backed it hoping it would happen and remember it just getting over the finishing line, just! I was also hoping that a Linux version would be released but not a sniff and still not played it.

    The goal was £1.25 million, and it raised nearly £1.6 million in direct Kickstarter funding. If that's not hugely successful, then I'd like the same level of "only-just" success please! <refreshes bank account waiting for all the monies>

    I suppose that's the difference between a well researched article from a writer vs a casual comment from the fat and lazy :) My failing memory only remembers it hitting £1.3 million but did rather better than that now I looked it up.
