Does Managed Directx mean using C# to write directx apps? C# and Directx is always Managed? C++ and Directx is always UnManaged? Would the above assumptions be correcT? Thanks!

You can write managed code using C# and Managed C++. Note that the .NET SDK or Visual Studio .NET comes with VC++ 7 which has Managed Extensions for C++ . Refer to the .NET documentation for more information about Managed C++.

You can also write unmanaged code using C#.

Managed DirectX is a layer ontop of the DirectX COM APIs that hides a lot of the memory management. You can use it from any .NET language, C#, VB, C++, etc.
