While this articles lists some things DirectX9 can do that 10 can't it misses some of 10's key benefits. For example, DirectX10 comes tied to an operating system which can screw you over at the drop of a hat. New video card? That's a re-activation. Windows update, that's a re-install...

Bitter? Me? No!
