    And you don't seem to READ what I've wrote, your precious open source developers dropped support for a lot of older hardware, you're not getting supported forever, period. Forever my ass.

    It's time for Linus to drop 486 support since he dropped 386 support, just to reiterate my point.

      Only if someone actually maintains those drivers, otherwise something like this will happen: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTQ5NDk
      The end of time? I don't think so.

        Those old Mesa drivers actually still compile and run on the modern graphics stack. They've specifically maintained backwards ABI compatibility to ensure that can still happen.
