Hardware acceleration, layered windows, and XP

Seema posted the final word on hardware acceleration for WPF layered windows. Long story short, layered windows won’t be hardware accelerated on Windows XP (but will on Windows Vista). We had hardware acceleration kind of sort of working, but it was pretty unreliable, and was actually slower than software rendering in some cases and some video cards.
