3D News, GL, DirectX 3Dfx died in the fourth quarter of 2000 and Windows XP came to life a year after. But seven years after, drivers for 3dfx cards still appear. First of all, it is nearly incredible that enthusiast community managed to support an operating system which was still in the works. Secondly - it is incredible that drivers that support both 32- and 64-bit Windows have just came out.

Maybe, but the specs were opened too. 3dfx released some pdfs with docs, and made quite a big deal about them opening up that info. The Open Source community loved it.

Of course then they died off. Bummer.
