|is GDI or GDI+ obsolete? is it safe to skip and just learn the user & kernel for win32?|
While both GDI and GDI+ continue to be supported in Windows, Direct2D and DirectWrite are recommended for new programs. In some cases, a mix of technologies might be more practical. For these situations, Direct2D and DirectWrite are designed to interoperate with GDI.
|I don't want to learn GDI as it seems useless compared to opengl/directx? this correct?|
