    And now (like pretty much every year ever since 3dfx disappeared) I have to wonder: Why didn't FXTC made into widespread adoption? Supposedly it had better compression ratio than S3TC and [MUCH] better quality, it was made open from the get go, and alas, didn't pickup steam. I know of no other cards that support it, other than the V100 Voodoo 4-5 cards of late '99 early 2000.

    I remember reading that there were possible patent problems with it. It's just a shame that possible patent problems were enough to scare people out of supporting it.
