    9.0a is newers and has some nessesary bug fixes. I don't even think M$ will allow one to download 9.0 anymore. There might even be security issues. But I know for a fact that it fixes quite a few bugs, and is newer, which is why you should grab DX 9.0a NOW!

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    I have already installed it, but I just thought it would be nice to know what they have fixed in this newer version. :hammer:

    When dx9 first came out, i put it in and could not use voice or remote on windows messenger, and it made the horse on 3dmark01se have huge holes in it and a few other odd things. When i went to do system restore, it turned out that while drinking a few days earlier with a friend, he turned off my system restore like an idiot trying to help save disc space. And i had to reformat to regain my business again since i rely heavely on remote and voice for after care of customers.
    Another lesson learded: dont trust m$ and dont let anyone who (thinks they know lots) touch your computer.

    Now dx9a works great since its needed for 3dmark03
