Even with only a 50% performance gain over wines stock d3d9 it would be worth it.
    Yeah I understood but my point is that it won't bring anywhere near enough performance to make the Gallium3D drivers competitive with NVIDIA/Catalyst. That doesn't mean it couldn't be very useful and bring notable improvement.

    With newer r600g drivers than Micheal uses in his reviews r600g is nearer to the performance of Catalyst. On my system right now for example I'm getting way better performance than Micheal is getting. I'd call it anywhere from 65% to 90% of the performance of Catalyst. And on 2d performance I'd call it about 250% the performance of Catalyst.

    But now classic Win API is expanding slower, and the real stuff happening is the .NET Framework.

    Also, with Steam on Linux and the games, Windows is losing relevance.
    Also smartphones and tablets are growing, so Windows is losing relevance.
