    Agreed. With all of the work that VMWare/Tungsten have put into Gallium3D to this point, I think it's fine if they want to donate some Mesa Gallium3D driver that they can use in VMWare. There's nothing (besides possible/probable unsuitability for the purpose) preventing someone else from using the same code in another driver.

    VMWare definitely benefits, but so does the Mesa project as a whole.

    How about KVM?

    Can anybody shed any light on how far this driver is from being used with KVM?

    EGL, meh. Probably with Maemo 6. Mesa, obviously. DRI? Are we talking about DRI1 or DRI2?

    When you need to run Linux on the host and guest systems, having accelerated 3d/video in the guest isn't nearly as useful I would think.
    There is potential. However, if somebody contributes a DirectX state tracker, then all these drivers would become quite usable on Windows too. As it is, it might be useful for ReactOS... Who knows?
