directx 9 and directx 10, how much overlaps?

Recommended Posts

In the school I am at(College)I do know win32 and I want to continue and look at direct3D. I see some classes and books on d3d9 but directx 10 is the new technology ms is pushing. How much of the knowledge of Direct3d 9 and DX 10 overlap? thanks

DirectX 10 is rarely used, as it is a vista exclusive, and not a whole lot of people have made the switch, plus DirectX 11 has already been announced, so it looks as though 10 is gonna have a short life, i suggest just learning 9, but make sure you learn shaders, because the fixed function pipline doesn't exist beyond 9
