I'm not ignoring that.  I'm taking it into account.  Like I said, all computers 
were new since before the turn of the century have 3D acceleration.  Sure, not
everyone has a brand new system, but how many people are still using systems
from the 90s.  And how many of those who are actually expect to be able to play
games created today on them?  If the answer's not "zero" it's close enough as to
make no difference.

Bottom line, in 2010 "the average joe" is running Windows XP, and has Direct3D
and OpenGL both installed out of the box whether he knows it or not.
