    Unless I am misremembering, Microsoft was founded and found success on the back of some actions which would now land a startup in a whole ocean of extremely hot water.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they want to try to make windows-only-features like direct storage available to at least keep some kind of vendor lock-in...

    They should be careful. When MS was still in OpenGL they delayed it and messed with it until they had their next DX out and - purely coincidentally - lost interest in "contributing" to OpenGL. MS so often was a hidden poision to a project, on should take utmost precautions.

    It's to prevent DX12 from becoming irrelevant everywhere but the xbox.

    Did DirectX(every bit of it) get open sourced and ported to Linux and FreeBSD?
