a rumour that i heard was that starcraft did not use hardware accel under 
windows, but under linux (say, using wine) it actually runs faster 
because x uses 2d acceleration for a lot of things.

but, again, as a disclamer, i never actually fooled around with this 
myself, so i'm only hearing it second hand...
