DarkWyrm has taken the time to write down why he feels that a 3D accelerated Haiku Desktop would provide a better user experience for all users. A 3D accelerated desktop is not just for eye candy anymore. DarkWyrm explains how a 3D desktop could easily be used to provide a lot more function than form for users. Read up and let us know what you think about Haiku having a 3D accelerated desktop.



DirectX wrapper to support R5 w/out OpenGL

realtech VR has posted an update to their directx wrapper page announcing that it will support R5 without requiring Be’s updated OpenGL kit. This is not only good news, but it is just amazing technically as well. Admittedly, it will be difficult to use, since it will not be hardware accelerated, but it is pretty nice anyway. That said, Be will either eventually release OpenGL (looking less likely these days), or it will leak its way around the community. By some accounts, the leaks are already out there. In any case, this wrapper will be able to help. Way to go realtech!
