Because Microsoft chose not to support add-in 3D accelerators on the NT kernel and its successors. Since Microsoft owns Direct3D they get to make the choice. It's very annoying since you can see how easily the cards can be made to run glide and OpenGL games under Windows 2000 and XP. It would have been easy for Microsoft to have allowed such support. But they're... very... annoying.

but the 3dfx Voodoo2 1000 V1.00.00b exists

This distribution contains Voodoo2 beta drivers and control panel for Windows 2000. The DirectX portion of the drivers supports DirectX 7.0.

NOTE: This beta driver does not include Glide or OpenGL support

Adding Direct3D support is very hard to do...so we try to get it but Windows NT/2000/XP environments lack of some features required by Voodoo2 to run proprerly with Direc3D API.

For now i suggest to use TnL primary card for D3D and Voodoo2 for GLide/OpenGL supported games

With out a doubt i have to agree with you on that one. i had one of those cards for a short time and could not get crap to work on it. i was even part of a beta test program for some 3rd party drivers hosted at rage3d, and while the drivers did make some improvements, clever programming could not make up for a crappy card.
