    The code and use of smart pointers reminded me of this audio blog:

    I'm not a native developer but I really like this, is this purely 7 only?

    I am trying out the new Windows 7 RC1 which seems to be 100 times better than Vista and much faster. As people say Windows 7 is what Vista should have been. Nice graphics and just the right level of animations not to get in the way.

    On a technical note I notice that Windows 7 RC1 does not contain some of the latest DirectX9 files i.e. from March 2009 such as X3DAudio1_6.dll  and XACT3 files. It would be nice if when Windows 7 is released that it includes all DirectX 9 files and that there will be no more changes to DirectX9 after that. So that someone buying Windows 7 from the shop will know it will play all DirectX9 games without having to download the DirectX9 runtime.

    This will be availble on Windows 7.  It will also be on Windows Vista via an update that should be available some time after Windows 7's general availability. A beta of the Windows Vista update will be available soon to MSDN subscribers.
