Well DX9 is Windows XP and with that being phased out I can guarantee that DX9 will die but someone will find a way or someone will come with something to allow emulation of DX9

Oh I know XP won't last forever. With SP3 being released soon I assume we'll see a few more years of XP support. I just don't want game companies to start getting on some soapbox about DX10 and how great it is so no more DX9. OR crippled DX9 so it's actually worse than it's real world limitations just to "prove" how great DX10 is :\

As far as DX11 goes you guys think they might push it back a year and package it with "windows 7"
