I just read that 3DFX is planning to sell of most of their assets to NVIDIA and drop out of the graphics card business.

The announcement is here: http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/001215/ca_3dfx_in.html

And here: http://www.nvidia.com/news.nsf/121500.html

In what ways do you think this might affect the development of OpenGL?

Before anyone asks me directly: no comment. If you have questions, you should address them to our PR or IR folks.

I thought this article provided a reasonable summary of what's happening:

Okay, Matt http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/wink.gif
I amm happy with that - now only ATI and nVidia are serious high-quality players in the market.
