This strikes me as particularly hilarious since ATI does not yet have an OpenGL driver available for Windows Vista -- the past three releases (albeit it /was/ only a Beta OS) have lacked OGL, sadly.

However, if this gets more games on to Linux or Mac, hey, more power to 'em. But I'll agree with situation: Unoptimized code that's been converted is bound to not run particularly well at all.
