It'd require SDK changes which are infeasible in 1.0. Express isn't feasible for a lot of things, so services like DreamSpark are handy there.

Except, you know, it is only for students. Which excludes me and most of the unemployed bums out there. :(

What about open source alternatives? Code::blocks, for example?

They don't compile DLLs compatible with other compilers (we use member function pointers, which the C++ spec didn't specifically lay down rules for).

Ugh. So that means there won't be as many plugin developers as anticipated. :|

The 2.0 SDK should be compatible with a number of compilers. The 1.0 SDK can, in theory, work with other compilers, but they have to implement member function pointers with a compatible binary format, and support ATL.

Practically, no two compilers out there do compile to the same format.

Well it could work on linux now too if you post request on Wine database and someone goes and do some magic. I tried install it on wine but the directx installer failed :(

The directx 9 installer is not the problem. There are other ways to install directx9. Winetricks is the easiest. you can also use it to install the C++ 2005 redistribute.

So, you can install it just fine. Thats not the problem. It crashes after it boots. Some people are able to get it to open and close w/out crashing. But thats all they can do.

Native support would be better. But just because they provide OpenGL and other cross-platform technology's doesn't mean they can provide non-windows versions right away. although its a step in that direction.
