Amazing how someon like Carmack was so wrong if he actually said that.
But I'm skeptical that he actually said DX9 could do everything DX10 could - that's just ignorant. Perhaps it's his interest clouding his honesty.

SM3 proved we didn't need DX10, but there is plenty it "can" do that DX9 cannot.

I don't know if he's made any comments about DX11 yet. But I remember him saying it was a gimmick to get people to buy Vista. As there were no real benefits.

As far as a gimmick to buy the next version DirectX capable hardware.....
