Shipping a 3D game has almost nothing to do with the raw technology.
Shaders and all that fancy eye candy is nice, but it really isn't
the hard part.  The hard part is all the grimy crap associated with
resource management, collision, basic rendering, content creation,
content management, etc.

How a specific pixel is drawn is almost completely and utterly
irrelevant in the grand scheme of things when trying to push a title
out the door.
