It is certainly untrue to claim that DirectX is not relevant to C++. I do
not think, and many others would agree, that OpenGL is a real alternative.
I have no wish in turning this into a flame war of DX vs GL. Whatever. I
simply wanted to raise the idea of a boost::directx or
boost::microsoft::directx namespace, to house common solutions.
The reality is that DirectX is here, it is supported by manufacturers, it is
needed by C++ developers, and it will stay here.
