    Phoronix: Collabora Still Investing In "Zink" For OpenGL Over Vulkan, But Back To GL 2.1

    Zink is the year-old project implementing OpenGL over Vulkan using Mesa/Gallium3D infrastructure. While Zink had been making some good progress by developer Erik Faye-Lund of Collabora, he went back to rewriting some core pieces of Zink to address some design defects. In the process of this rewrite, Zink is currently back to OpenGL 2.1 era support over Vulkan...

    I was worried already as there have been less and less commits for Zink. But this rewrite sounds good, hope it can make it to upstream Mesa soon :-)

        Does it mean they get rid of more Gallium-Layer-Overhead?

                Gallium-Nine demonstrated that layer overhead is very light, not something to worry about

                    We are all men of culture, I know (this is an actually international forum, most people here aren't native english speakers).
                    My point is that sayings and famous quotes from other languages can't be translated literally to another language.

                    So even if in Spanish "más y más" is correct, "less and less" is still not correct in English, which is why I decided to troll him a little.
