It's a state tracker that exposes Microsoft's DirectX 10/11 API on Linux! And it's already working and can be hooked into Wine!"
Wonderful, we have folks wanting a propriatary system in Wine.  Blah!  
Remember, Wine is NOT only used with Linux.  I would NEVER expect to see 
this for the Mac and surely not for any of the BSD runs.

It sounds at it could accelerate wine by a full year. 1.3.3 is great and i dont even use windows, not even for playing which was my LAST "excuse" of using windows for "something". But with this, if it is true, i think a lot more people wont be seeing or missing that other OS  [Laughing]
Nope.  They 'looked under the hood' and thus NONE of their code will be 
able to be used with Wine, mostly to keep this project out of legal 
waters we don't want even get near.
