America Online (AOL) has signed a non exclusive deal with Microsoft to enable its customers to download the software giant's DirectX electronic games enhancer.
The deal follows Microsoft's decision at the end of last week to abandon the fight to link its instant messaging system with AOL's more popular rival offering.
DirectX is a set of application programming interfaces (API) that are built into the Windows operating system and used by PC software developers to create games and multimedia applications, which include enhanced 3D graphics, audio and high speed performance.
