    Well, as I tried to explain, this isn't necessarily about desktop.
    Linux is the platform for embedded, be it in-seat entertainment, machine control panels, etc. and all these devices nowadays have touch screens, prompting the need for touch interfaces (because people have been trained to expect that kind of experience with touch screens by mobile devices).

    There is also a lot of data visualization needs (a lot of data and/or rapidly changing data) on desktop style hardware across industries that just works a lot better with dedicated rendering hardware.

    OpenGL on Linux is for more than just end user consumer PC territory.
