If one has the Direct3D units, there shouldn't be any problems.  But I guess
the only way to know is to try it.

should be your man - think he even has a page for lazarus on win32)

Yes, I do have a page about it and I'm going to try to get around to writing
more about ways that others can help get it finished.  But personally, I
think it's fine for a 0.8.3; as Lazarus approaches 1.0 and gets stabilized,
I think that will be the time to work out the nuances.

Besides, my page only deals with the native Win32 interface.  However,
Daniel was talking about the GTK+ interface; this is obvious because the
win32 interface doesn't use the GTK+ DLL's.  I think Mike Hess is handling
the GTK+ on Win32 version.
