Internet Explorer Microsoft has "set up and removed" having Windows 7 Service Pack 1 as a prerequisite to running (or, more correctly, "installing") IE9, in the space of just 2 days.

So bleeding edge that Firefox can implement faster hardware acceleration on Windows XP.

bleeding edge doesn't mean good, it means bad. And MS never uses technologies from outside the company, so obviously, directx is where it would be implemented.

The whole thing is moot anyways, since dx11 is supported on vista (which I didn't know when I wrote that comment). So that doesn't explain the win7 restriction, it should be available on vista too.
