    Phoronix: Linux Foundation To Take Stab At 3D Patent Issue

    This week at the X Developers' Conference there was a talk surrounding OpenGL 3.x and its lack of complete support within the latest Mesa code.

            Ian has represented the open-source community diligently for quite a few years as a member of the OpenGL ARB. He's a very skilled and intelligent person, and is widely regarded as one of the people that have made open-source accelerated 3D possible.
