    So far only Valve made a difference, The Indie bundles less important and anything else is just irrelevant drama on phoronix.
    Rather pathetic are those Linux devs spending 99.9% of their time over-polishing their open-source game engines (almost) nobody uses to play.

    Please, NVIDIA, offer 3D Vision on Linux! 3D Vision remains the only reason I still dual boot to Windows.

    I can see 3D Vision being a smash hit for SteamOS in the living room.

    Rather patetic are those stupid Phoronix commenters spending 99.9% of their time over-polishing their hate comments about games that respect your freedom and usually don't cost anything.

    Now I am using an NVIDIA card, but this whole thing sounds like a vendor lock-in attempt. Well, PhysX has always been that (there's not a single reason why it can't be accelerated on other GPUs, except for NVIDIA explicitly checking for an NVIDIA GPU presence)...

    It's don't need to check for GPU vendor, it's PC version just implemented on top of CUDA that not work on AMD/Intel GPUs.

    Just want to say that Intel not any better here. They bought Havok back in days when it's was industry standard and soon killed it's OpenCL-powered GPU acceleration that was in development.

    Havok had an OpenCL-powered GPU backend in development & Intel being Intel just killed it off? If so, just wow... (still, would be cool if You could also provide some links for further reading)

    BTW, thanks Michael for coming to the rescue!
