- ID3DXSprite is still there, yes.

- DirectDraw isn''t and never has been dead, if you''re doing a 2D only app which doesn''t need any new (almost all 3D specific) features, then it''s often a more suitable ''fit'' than D3D.

- However, doing 2D in 3D does get you a few nice benefits like being alpha and rotation.
