We should add a section to SDL, what has changed because
of TuxPaint, no just joking :-)
SDL 1.2 uses DirectX 5, a really old version of DirectX now.
Microsoft will not take much care and effort
into doing the emulation layer for DX5. So in the future
there will be more problems with it, then less.
GDI was used by normal Windows apps and so MS
needs to be carefull, as it should be still possible
to run old apps, what they definitely want.
