DirectX 10 for XP is unofficial, in Alpha and may cause problems elsewhere.
Microsoft have stated there will be no DirectX 10 under XP as its a selling point for Vista.

Right! That was stated in my second link above:

As Microsoft has announced that the DirectX 10 currently support to Windows Vista only.

@BloodScribe: I use Vista on my laptop and have no problems with it. There are ways to turn off a lot of the fancy features to conserve resources. But my LT runs just fine with them all on.
