Mesa

Mesa is an open-source OpenGL implementation and consists of both hardware drivers (e.g. Intel, Radeon, Nouveau, et al) along with software drivers (Softpipe, LLVMpipe). The Gallium3D component of Mesa provides not only OpenGL support but also video acceleration (VDPAU), compute support (OpenCL), and other capabilities for modern GPUs.
