VMware's Virtual GPU Driver Is Still Advancing
Phoronix: VMware's Virtual GPU Driver Is Still Advancing
While there's usually always something to talk about with each new kernel release for the Intel, Radeon, and Nouveau DRM/KMS drivers, that isn't always the case for VMware's "vmwgfx" virtual GPU driver. This driver for exposing 3D acceleration to guest virtual machines on VMware's virtualization products does work quite well already, but the open-source developers have been recently working on a few improvements...
Hopefully, they can get 3D guest support on Linux hosts with Intel graphics working. 3D doesn't work on Workstation 9/Player 5.
Is it advancing? Really?
