Good thing that Alibre Desing is one of the few with DirectX-support instead of Open GL then :-)

As someone who is actively doing CAD every day on Vista, here is my first hand response to these claims:

"* OpenGL performance will be significantly reduced - perhaps as much as 50%"

This is not the case in my experience. My Laptop running Vista runs CAD faster than my work desktop, which has comparable hardware.

"It is possible to resurect OpenGL to its full performance, but that means the loss of the "eye candy" effects on the Vista desktop."

So? I don't look at the translucent glass effects around my windows when doing CAD, do you?
