A brief history of DirectX and my experience

Though DirectX comes pre-installed with almost all Windows OS versions including Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista and XP. It comes installed with previous versions including Windows2000, WindowsME and even Windows 98. If you have been a classic PC user, you might had used these old versions. Yeah, those were simple days. I still remember when I used to upgrade DirectX and Windows Media Player latest versions on Windows 98, then 2000 and ME; Windows XP had a long life as compared to any other version with modern GUI (Graphical User Interface).

Internet was not common those days and was limited to a few people, especially Internet clubs. So I had to bring some latest software in a CD. DirectX is free to download and install. I actually needed latest version of DirectX to play my favorite games on PC, especially Need for Speed by EA (Electronic Arts).

After that, things seem almost same even today, after years. I still have to download DirectX latest version to upgrade it in order to play modern games. Though it affects numerous aspects of operating system, PC games have been the major aspect of this software.

I hope you might have passed (or passing) through the same phase if you love to play games on PC. Won’t it be great to share our stories and refresh the joy times in our lives? Let’s share and hear our game passion. But how? Well, I guess comment box would be ideal for our stories. Share your thought, I’ll be there with you. After all, we all love to remember our good classic days.
