Yeah, but Direct3D has some nifty effects available for developers
(pixel shaders, particles, etc.). MS does a great job with DirectX. At
least from an end user perspective. The games on the PC are so much
better, graphically, than those on the console. I guess that's why I
never got into console gaming.

While I prefer not to use Windows for work, IMHO there just isn't a
better gaming platform.
