        Xorg and mesa aren't making their drivers cross-platform. It's shameful really. If the drivers for freebsd were part of upstream, dragonfly could just copy the drivers from freebsd.

        Edit: On second thought ... xorg and mesa are struggling to develop the drivers. So making them cross-platform would be even harder.
