I'm pretty sure that THS diverged from our timeline earlier than in the 2000s, since it needed some preconditions for the very rapid space race. But from that divergence point, N+20 years of development offers better tech than N+0.

Plus it's just very annoying that a setting that calls itself Transhuman Space lacks such a basic non-TL^, mere TL9 technology despite being closer to TL10 than 9 in general.
