Correct. DirectX 8.1 comes with XP, Vista, and Windows 7 by default.
the only reason the DirectX Update utility comes with MOTA is that at
some point Philip will be upgrading Streemway to use the newer DirectX
that ships with Vista and Windows 7 that uses XAudio2 instead of
DirectSound 8.1. Since I'm not quite clear when that update to
Streemway will be coming I felt it would be safe to offer the DirectX
Update in case someone needed it for an unexpected Streemway upgrade.
Besides it never hurts to make sure DirectX is up to date anyway.
