It still uses DirectWrite/Direct2D, it just doesn't use Direct3D for showing it on the screen.
I'm still not sure what Opera means by saying they want to be the first to be fully hardware accelerated, does that mean they'll do Theora/WebM decoding on the GPU? (Compared to Firefox that decodes on the CPU, and does colour space conversion/scaling/painting on the GPU)

Opera is just trolling, albeit, it would be nice if they added support for DXVA2.
