Since Dx 9.L is an emulation layer (see the "L") it will be only an interface between the Dx 9.0c (sm3.0) we all have and a Dx10 game. With it's help we'll be able to play Dx10 titles on our current cards.
*FEAR: by saying Vista only I suppose they meant Dx10 only, imagine that until the next summer only a small minority would have migrated to Vista, so why should they tie themselves to only one OS?
