    Nice, nouveau on the other hand is rotting away .
    they do have a much more difficult job, working without documentation, not having full-time developers paid by nvidia, ... you can hardly blame the devs.

      and just waiting for someone to throw dirt on them.
      I am a user no different from you. Patches welcome.

      There's the GLSL 1.3 compiler being worked on by Intel.

        I'm a end-user and I'd like to know if I can get ride of fglrx.
        I'm playing HoN, that whats get me stick to fglrx for my Radeon HD4870 (RV700 family).

        Can an article from Michael gives a feed-back on how are working OSS drivers against fglrx in terms of 3D performances, quality (video tearing for example), 2D speed ?

          OK so now I have tested the ETQW demo without libtxc_dxtn.so (i.e. without S3TC) and it even cannot load the level (it looks like textures seem to be the problem). Game developers don't care about Mesa, I bet they have *NOT* tested the game with S3TC disabled. Who would expect a driver to not support S3TC nowadays anyway?

          So I have to consider r300g to be ETQW-ready no matter what the article says. Gonna kill some marines with my Lacerator, see ya!

            Yup, it's the same on the Intel side, no fun and games without libtxc_dxtn.
