Hi,VMware Workstation 6.5.0(and .1) arleady support DirectX 9
(and supported (almost unusable) DirectX 8 starting from 4.5)
Parallels Workstation 3.0 on Mac also supports DirectX 9
btw, Parallels in fact supports OpenGL AND used Wine's D3D-to-OpenGL
translator to support DirectX, may be such thing could be done here too?Or
even their patch (provided to wine project) be used directly?
Question is OpenGL support in VirtualBox mature ENOUGH(i.e. OpenGL 2.0,
GLSL,etc) for this?
