The more pixels, the higher the resolution and hence the higher the quality the image is, plain and simple.
Folks like you is the reason why camera manufacturers are pushing higher mega pixels every year way beyond its optimum range for sensor size.
I don't want to write pages to explain that, but say this instead. I have 10MP Panasonic ZS3 and newer 16MP Sony HX7V. They both have 1/2.3" size sensor and similar lens aperture. And guess which one makes better details, quality images? ZS3 runs circle around HX7V.
