It's a shame that manufacturers feel the need to include features that aren't really going to be used.
>However, the D5000 does have something the D90 lacks – an articulating LCD screen that swivels up to 270 degrees – more on this later.
I hardly think the number of times that a swivel screen will be needed on this type of camera justifies it's inclusion, other than as a marketing point which panders to the consumers need to check off another tick box on a comparison chart. It would have made more sense to have a fixed sreen and lower price thereby getting those potential D60 owners to spend the extra money.
The movie clip has so much traffic noise that it's impossible to tell if the D5000 microphone is naturally noisy like the D90s. Although not likely to be used for any serious filming the D90s microphone is so noisy that it precludes it from being so. Maybe you could clarify this for any potential D5000 owners who might think the movie feature is a deciding factor even given your comments on the actual video quality.
