That is changing, quite a few VM's support OpenGL (VirtualBox, maybe
VMWare Workstation, Parallels) and some are supporting DirectX using
Wine DLL's. (Not sure how this is done, the virtual driver probably
intercepts calls, the VM adapts it for running in a possible
non-fullscreen mode and passes it on to the host OS)

MS might be able to implement a DirectX interface as well...

Of course virtualization still requires huge amounts of RAM and needs
to emulate quite a bit of hardware, which is bad for performance.
