    I develop for many OS's windows, *nix, osx. Currently coding satellite control systems.


    It was clear, but due to your misunderstanding it has complicated a little. I was talking about something else... Simple question: do binary blobs use mesa (NVIDIA driver especially)? I want to hear it from you and it will be great if you just say: yes or no.
    No the blobs do not use mesa.

    Here's a great article about tunning EXT3 file system:

    Maybe perhaps make your comments in a clear, concise manner that doesn't require filling in of the blanks and you will be more pleased with the answers. As it stands , you don't even seem to understand what uses mesa and what uses a optimized ICD.

    Read 100x times more and maybe you will understand what I meant...

    The blobs don't use mesa that's why.

    The Nexuiz tests on intel graphics are not interesting to me.
    sqlite test is important. Most sane people would use noatime or relatime, which should have dramatic results.

    I would love to see someone with similar/identical hardware post some PTS global links with different configurations/distros for comparison. Also, GNU/Linux is as much about choice as anything else - having the most default setup beat osx is just an added bonus.

    No, they don't. They use the ICD approach, providing themselves the GL library, why do you think you have a different libGL with the nVidia and fglrx drivers? ; and the GL library usually conflicts with the Mesa library included in most systems, and distribution packages manage to keep both libraries, making the proprietary GL library visible to the applications, but not breaking the installed Mesa package.

    And I provided those Granted, I know not many give the same credit to the Wikipedia, but stillf or computing topics their articles are usually very well done.

    You are welcome... It took me some three hours to post (as I wanted to make sure all my info was right )

    You didn't mentioned in that comment what area you were talking about and that's why I replied (sic!).

    Testing 2 non-Mesa drivers against each other in different OS doesn't prove squat when it comes to finding out if Mesa is the limiting factor or not.
    So, why you asked:
    Why do you think blobs bypass MUCH of X
    ? If those drivers aren't using mesa? Man, you're amazing me, but it doesn't matter...
