as per my thinking...directx 10 increase visual graphics...and we all know that more the graphics more compatibility but less the speed..... speed may decrease a bit

Win7 only have DirectX 11, but if the gfx card only supports DirectX 9 or 10 then Win7 will only use whatever your gfx card supports.
You can say DX11 has both DX9 and 10, plus some more functions (like tessellation) that DX9 and 10 don't have.

As for speed, DX11 is faster than DX10 and has better looking gfx compared to DX10.
But it is true that DX10 is around the same or slower than DX9 with not much improved gfx.

IIRC, DX11 is still faster than DX9, but CMIIW.

Meh, compatibility is about the same. Besides, Windows 7 uses a lot of the same drivers as Vista. If your aim is compatibility, though, might want to stick with Windows 7 32-bit for now. Not everything works perfectly/easily with 64-bit just yet. DirectX 11 is backwards compatible with DirectX 9 and 10.

I agree with u but compatibility factor is becoz some vista drivers are not similar to windows 7.......and windows 7 shows less compatibility than vista becoz windows 7 is new and arent tested correctly...i have window 7 in my laptop and i compared with vista....

modren windows 7 arent playing many games and softwares becoz of diffrent drivers . windows 7 having problems and complaints for running some graphic cards......some video cards are not properly supotted by windows 7


thats why windows 7 seems to have less compatible as compared to vista

No, in general, Windows 7 is still a more viable option and has more driver support because hardware manufacturers don't have to change much of their driver codes from their Vista drivers.

Laptops, however, is entirely dependent on its manufacturers.
i.e. if ASUS or Lenovo doesn't update the manufacturer-specific software (like volume or brightness control) for use in Win7, then don't update to Win7, especially if your laptop's original OS is WinXP.

But for a desktop PC, Win7 is generally recommended.
You won't have troubles finding the drivers for your components, and most of the time the Vista drivers work well with Win7.

So, no, don't compare your laptop's compatibility problems on Win7 with a desktop.
And FYI, Win7 is FAR MORE tested than Vista; it's a fact.

For what I tested, the DX10 is faster than the DX9. And the win7 is a lot better than vista. So far, all things that are compatible with vista, are compatible with win7. WinXP is more compatible, and is faster than vista, but win7 is faster than XP.

Why you put ATI or Nvidia in the poll? If you ask about windows and directx.
