I remember it not being that exciting...

Perhaps you should add some "exciting" content, then. It is an open wiki, after all...

There are tons of sites that offer DirectX tutorials. Assuming you use c++, Drunken Hyena's site (click the colorful sig in his post) is great for getting started. He also has tutorials for c# and managed code. Those tutorials really got me started.

Yes you can use DirectX with dev C++. IIRC, thgere maty be an extra lib or something though. I'm sure someone else can help you out here...

You are probably right, I am getting more comfortable with DX. I have been using it for a while, but I feel like I have nothing to show for it...

Have you tried www.codesampler.com.
They have tutorials in both directx and opengl where you can see the different approach to the approximately same visuals in both API's.
