    If you ask me, NVIDIA's Nalu is still better than ATI's Ruby. Though at least Ruby is an open-source girl
    Speaking of which, it would be nice if either or both companies released one (or all ) of their technical demos for Linux too

      OMG, one hour ago I exactly thought about the same thing Many of these techdemos are written in OpenGL, even the newer ones, so it would be possible.

        I know at least nVidia uses OpenGL on many of their tech demos (I'm not so sure about AMD-ATI). Most prominently I remember the demos for NV15-20 (the marching toys demo and the Werewolf demo, dunno if the Squid demo was in OpenGL) were in OpenGL. I believe the Nalu and Dawn/Dusk demos were Direct3D, though, showcasing Shader Model 3.0 and 2.0 technology (respectively), but then again, I could be wrong.

        Edit

        I don't know if the Humus Demos available for Linux could be considered official ATI tech demos for Linux, since he has been working for ATI (or at least I believe so) for some now... Hopefully AMD still employs him.

        Edit 2

        Seems he left AMD on 03-Sept... To develop games... How interesting.

          Hahaha!! Just tried to run the Glow demo from Humus on my nVidia setup and got this:

          Code:
           ./Glow-32 
          [Missing extensions]
          The following required OpenGL extensions are supported:
          
          GL_ARB_vertex_program
          GL_ARB_fragment_program
          
          Too bad, these required OpenGL extensions aren't supported by the graphic card and driver you're using:
          
          GLX_ATI_render_texture
          
          This application will now exit.
          Gave a good laugh! Seems that after all, you can still do some "localized" demos in OpenGL for Linux for a particular hardware platform! Nice!

            If you ask me, I prefer the first
            If I had to pick between those two, I would have to say the first also.

            But I gotta say Luna is my pick, the demo Nvidia has got of her to showcase HDR is sweet
