Microsoft's 3D graphics/gaming/multimedia library (or libraries, I imagine). A lot of games use it these days, which makes running them on Linux a bit of a pain. But, whenever Microsoft puts new features in a new version of DirectX, all the graphics card makers (er, Ati and nVidia) jump to put out a card that can do all the new stuff.. so it doesn kinda drive the PC graphics card market.
