AMD64 is binary hardware compatible with x86 but it is very different too it is true 64 bit which makes it the fresh start to a new era

Number one Reactos emulates Direct X by opengl.

So a opengl by Direct X is just going to create a loop not nice.

But looking at the driver code might be able to directly link opengl to direct X drivers so opengl can emulate Direct X. Yes this is really nasty and should be cleaned up at some point but this is just a short cut for now.

Now this is reactos not windows there are some internal differences that may or may not be removed with time.

From what i recall in earlier discussions about DirectX/OpenGL, ReactOS doesnt emulate DirectX using OpenGL. ReactOS will work to reimplement the DirectX framework from scratch.
