To bad that WINE and YOU are wrong!!! The D3D(or HLSL) state-tracker, doesn't need heavy translations, and doesn't need D3D dlls. Its easier to maintain than the current alpha-state WINE D3D-compiler, and does not need support from Nvidia nor AMD. It will only need a back-end in order to work with closed drivers. You can use LLVM, but some one need to continue development. As for patents, come one now. Microsoft said that Linux-Kernel and WINE violate their patents.
