    Everytime graphics libraries are mentioned, even in the slightest, you jump in with Allegro. Are you being paid?
    LOL, I should be shouldn't I!?!? Er... I'll shut up now.

    BTW, with Wine running on SuSE 7.2 or higher I have been able to play many DirectX games at reasonably fast to faster speeds, but I wouldn't really call it a native port or anything.. it is basically being interpreted. Linux just does it really well (most of the time).

    Post Both are good......

    Both of them are great but at the moment im using OpenGL and i have done some good things in it. OpenGL is more easier than Direct X8. All im saying is i use OpenGL for graphics and DirectX for everything else such as Direct play, sound, input.
