hmm.. I think a moderator will move the subject

There are two main differences :
1. DBP is easier than DirectX
2. DBP is slower than DirectX

That's why I love DBP.. I don't have enough time to learn another language, and DBP is fast enough for me

Ye need to combine it with a language, like C++ or visual basic .net
