d3d9 Recommendations

gonutz
The advantage of using Direct3D on Windows (instead of OpenGL) is that its driver support is solid. In a default Windows installation, only OpenGL 1.1 is supported. If no additional drivers are installed, Direct3D is the only way to get 3D (and fast 2D) graphics on the screen. Being able to use it from Go means that my applications (e.g. this game for Gopher Gala 2016: https://github.com/gonutz/gophette) potentially run on 95% of all computers (http://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/).
