WINEs directx design is not the same as Microsofts but yes once ReactOS is ready you should be
able to install the directx from M$ or from Winex. I would like to see Winehq go to the same
design as Windows2000,XP,etc. The issue seems to be the lack of stablity and the need for a DDK
and associated interfaces. Not to mention lack of Wine developer interest =)
