Wine Devs Have Mixed Feelings Over Direct3D In Gallium3D

Two days ago we reported on Direct3D being natively implemented in Gallium3D that now allows Direct3D (the 3D portion of the DirectX API) to work on Linux via this advanced graphics driver architecture and unlike Wine's implementation it does not simply translate the calls to OpenGL. This has generated much interest among developers and end-users with there being more than 200 comments in our forums and plenty of discussion elsewhere too. However, some Wine developers seem to be in objection to this work.
