Yes thats my thought aswel on the matter

Essentially, this is what is going on, and I am trying to be fair to both sides.

--First off, don't complain too much that Dx9 cards wont run Dx10. Its not like Dx7 or 8 cards run Dx9, why would 10 be any different.

--Next, understand that Dx10 (also called Dx Next) is a totally new system for games, and its simply unrealistic to build it on top of directx9 (which was build on 8,7,6,...etc) They needed a new platform, and we are just the ones that happen to be around to bite the bullet on it.

--Still, I agree that it sucks that Dx9 will have to be emulated on a software level. However, I am confident that Microsoft will not release Dx10 until there is a feasable solution to Dx9 gaming. I simple cannot believe that MS would leave Dx9 and below out to dry. And I imagine developers wouldn't be very happy about such things occuring either.

So, in all, I believe MS has their work cut out for them ,but for anyone who has worked with game design and the fundamentals of any API, you must understand that there is no 'easy' button for this industry. I think the sooner we can support Dx10, the faster it will be implemented and done so more effectively.

There will be a DX9 version of Vista, but graphically it wont be "as" nice if you had DX10

Where did you read this at? I have read from about 3 sources that DX9 cards WILL NOT be able to run DX10, microsoft has made it completely non-backwards capable. This means, if DX10 can not run DX9, then DX9 won't run DX10.

BTW, it's not called DX next...it's called Windows Graphics Foundation 2.0.

Lastly, Vista will run on DX9 cards, it just won't have the aero-glass (the transpart part, if you look at screen shots).
