    No, the 3d engine meant here is the *hardware* engine. Nothing to do with mesa or other software, but the actual silicon on the card. And all drivers use the 3d engine from the ddx, that's how EXA works (UXA or SNA in Intel's case). Glamor is yet another different thing.

      The BSD and Solaris guys disagrees.

        Linux guys too

        For clarity, nobody is saying that there won't be a DDX. All we're talking about here is re-using the Gallium3D hardware layer code in the DDX for EXA acceleration etc... rather than writing different accel code from scratch.

        This should have little to no impact on BSD, Solaris or other OS ports.

            i'm a troll account of michael?

            anyway i do not have a point about the ddx tropic to say.

            also i think the new code will be usable in 6 months in ubuntu 11.10...

                  It's pretty strange not to use the same basis.
                  For doing matrix calculations in 2d space in a separate thing.

                  All you have to do is to put some elements zero and you can do 2d stuff with 3d oriented matrix calculation circuits.
