The shutter speed point is a good one. I got my first DSLR as a D90 when it came out and was very happy with the versatility after decades with film and got used to being able to shoot at lower SS than I ever was able to in film. The habit went with my to the D7000 and it took a good solid afternoon of experimenting before I realized shooting with film like speeds really made a difference. No question the D90 is a competent camera that hits a very comfortable and forgiving spot on the scale of skills required versus performance obtained, that allows or encourages less attention to the details of shooting.
Another factor in apparent image quality is the D90 needed a little more sharpening to overcome its overly mild default settings. Everyone learned to boost sharpening and contrast in custom PC's. When the D7000 came along, the default settings were even less dramatic so the rear screan and the low res computer monitors did not show the increased data captured to its best advantage.
Next in my Nikon NAS was the D800 but I was prepared with still faster shutter speeds, not by much but enough to make a visible difference. The result was a transition from D7000 habits to D800 habits took minutes. I still have not read the manual.
Going from a D90 or point and shoot, which so many new users did, would have been even less encouraging than the easy transition from D7000, or D3x.
Slowing down the picture taking, increasing the shutter speed a bit and tweaking your favorite PC will result in large gains in image quality.
