    if hardware supports something - it will be hardware accelerated in mesa.
    And if someone has the time to implement it.

    so, if you would have a card that would support e.g 50% of opengl3 features, you obviously would not have a opengl3 compliant hardware.

    but you will get hardware acceleration for those operations that hardware can do.

    Hence the R600+ hardware requirement...

    Presumably 0.1 version. (Mesa will jump to 8.0 when OpenGL 3.0 is supported.)

    Fan of zack

    I'm always happy to see Zack Rusin's posts when they appear in the feed from PlanetKDE. You are almost sure to read some funny post about some interesting new development.

    And the benefit is...?

    Good to know Zack Rusin has a sense of humor. Hope this is supported on G96 (GeForce 9400M) soon

    P.S. - First!
