What versions of DirectX do the different versions of Windows ship with?
I have heard of at least one online game publisher who prefers its
submissions to use DirectX 5 or below, as anything higher obviously
limits the market. Will it be feasible to also have this as an option,
or will there be too much code duplication then?
