I know this is about Linux but I decided to post it here because I'd like this to be read by 3D experts, not linux experts.
As you perhaps know, there is discussion on the LKML (Linux Kernel Mailing List) about creating a Linux-friendly graphics card - ie : completely open, free and documented interface, architecture and drivers.
The guys look quite motivated to achieve that goal but they need help from 3D experts. Quote :
So if you are interested, I think the best entry point is this KernelTrap entry :in order to meet those needs most effectively, we need experts in 3D graphics to participate in this forum, offering suggestions and debating the merits of one feature or another.
