Looks like the Alky project at Falling Leaf Systems is no more. The team has dis-banded. They have made their source code available under LGPL.

Here is the official letter on Google Groups:

It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of Falling Leaf

Systems, LLC. We set out over a year ago to provide users of both "old

and unsupported" as well as "alternative" Operating Systems the

ability to run the latest games for the PC. Unfortunately, Falling

Leaf Systems was unable to achieve that goal.

However, every ending tends to open another door for opportunity and

though we are saddened to announce our departure, we are almost as

excited to announce the immediate availability of ALL source code for

the Alky Project! It is licensed under the LGPL and includes both the

orginal Alky Converter source used to convert the popular Prey Demo to

run on OSX and Linux, as well as the alpha release of the Alky

Compatibility Libraries which attempted to provide a DirectX10

compatible runtime for Windows XP. All of this is available at

http://www.fallingleafsystems.com/

We have also created some new forums on the site for users to discuss

the coming cycle of DirectX 10 based games. We hope that you'll pop in

there from time to time, and we also hope you join our mailing list to

receive an announcement in case some other Open Source project decides

to carry on the Alky banner.

We appreciate all your past support; Happy gaming!

Will someone continue this project?

That sucks! I was looking forward to seeing this work on XP all the way through 2015!
