Wine is doing nothing wrong we use generic OpenGL extensions all
through Wine. The issue is that the intel drivers don't offer all
opengl extensions we need for decent d3d9 support, if the gl support
isn't there we can't support it. Second the quality of the intel
drivers still isn't very good, sure recent versions support GLSL, FBOs
and other things but the drivers are first of all buggy and second
very slow for those purposes. Further ATI works reasonably well with
Wine as well these days (it used to be crap). Intel needs to fix their
