Games "Last Wednesday, a company called Falling Leaf Systems announced the availability of an alpha of something called the Alky Project. The Alky Project has a lofty goal: to liberate DirectX 10 gaming from the confines of Vista and bring it first to Windows XP, and then to Linux and OS X. The project plans to do this by building a converter that can take in a DX10 game executable and spit out a modified version that can be run on a (non-Vista) target OS. The target OS must be x86-based, which rules out the PPC version of OS X, since the converter doesn't do any binary translation."

You're either trolling and saying you're not or just not thinking. For one thing, this is being ported to XP first, and then Linux AND OS X later. Second, this isn't going to be part of Linux, but will instead be separate and will be distributed seperately as well.
