        Thanks for the info, really. But...

        Why is VMware the biggest contributor? I don't get it. They code there their drivers for paravirtualization, right? I can't understand why that code makes them the biggest contributor, maybe they do some extra stuff but I'm still unable to look at that stuff fastly.

        It would be nice the next time to put a summary about what they were coding all these time... :P

            Gallium3D was started by Tungsten Graphics that later was acquired by VMware.

              Oh, I see. Thanks a lot for the clarification!

              Yet they are unable to provide DirectX 12 support on their virtualization products? Why?
