 I heard however, tell me if I'm wrong if you know better, that while
 Direct3D allows for more general support..Some of the particular
 features, of say the Voodoo, won't be implemented directly in the
 Direct3D code...While the Verite chip WILL because of Creative Labs
 close parntership with Microsoft.
 Life is grand, don't mess it up..
 Existence is meaningless, buck up!
