Zebadias writes "DX10, available only on the forthcoming Windows Vista, offers up a plethora of improvements, especially inside the Direct3D 10 component (D3D10), for developers to get their hands on, which will eventually end up as improvements to media applications that you use, be they games or something else.

This article seeks to split off D3D10 and explain how its API and runtime improvements and changes, tied to Windows Vista, seeks to benefit the developer. I'll then turn that into something for the end-user to understand and look forward to."
