  • Question

  • I just purchased a copy of Win XP today ... full license. $300+ ...

    I then went to the Microsoft website, simply to make sure my DirectX is up to date.

    I now have to spend another $149, just to have the right to update DirectX!?

    This is insane.

    Someone please set me straight before I simply give up & take the company back to a Mac platform.
