Well, the difference isn't really big, it just looks a tad better (at
least in DX10 with max details over DX9 with max details, DX10 with less
than max details is probably pointless as there probably is no
difference to DX9). But it isn't groundbreaking, and definitely doesn't
make up for the lack of proper gameplay (like in Crysis).

There's always a software and hardware portion of all DX versions. I'm
sure the software portion will continue to work on as ancient hardware
as you can get.

Yeah, you can basically think of OpenCL will be to DirectX11's "compute
shaders" feature, as OpenGL was to previous DirectX's 3D graphics
engine. They are competitors to each other, where one is multi-vendor
while the other one is single-vendor but a big vendor (Microsoft).

In FSX using DX10, all my runways and taxiways flash and I cannot use
it. ATi 4870 latest drivers (as always).
