GOG Unreal Gold (Glide vs D3D 226)

Iíve got a very weird question about GOGís work. If we compare Direct3D render from 226 with Glide, which one is better? I know that original D3D was a crap, but 226 one is better than glide or not? Cause for some reason, GOG team added nglide into their unreal gold release, and I canít understand why?

It's not crap.
It works well with d3d wrappers like dgVoodoo2.

The main problem is the gamma management (totally different from Glide's one).
  

The task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen, but to think what nobody has yet thought, about that which everybody sees - E.S.

I love Glide, I prefer the overall looks of it over vanilla d3d, even in the later releases (before 227/OMP).

I particularly don't like d3d so much as the graphics are washed out into dull colors due to the weird multitexture/blending implementation. This is especially noticeable in the way the game renders the skies, just compare the sky in Dark Arena in glide and d3d...

Via PCem (https://pcem-emulator.co.uk/) emulator which recreates real hardware I was able to play in unreal 1.0 like it was back then on voodoo 2:
