Which XWin engine is "best"?

Dont use NativeGDI, because it is a development engine...
If you have DirectX 4 or greater, use DirectDraw4... most people do, and it is
faster than the old standby of DirectDraw.

Either DirectDraw engine will work, but if you can use DirectDraw4, then do it.

PS (to the rest of the group).  If I got anything wrong, please correct me.
