3D News, GL, DirectX "Today, with the coming introduction of the NVIDIA 780i chipset, NVIDIA is looking to make serious changes to what is possible with enthusiast systems by launching a new technology platform. The name of the new standard is ESA - Enthusiast System Architecture. Its goal is to provide information and control to enthusiasts not just for NVIDIA motherboards and video cards, but to provide that information and control for many other components in an ESA-enabled system. The actual protocol is OS independent. This is very important for the future of ESA, as it will eventually allow ESA to operate with any platform."

What does the Linux Kernel Team foresee, OpenBSD team, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, etc., all foresee as possibilities?

How does nVidia plan to work with AMD, with Intel, with Apple, etc?

To me it seems the greatest amount of work, outside of their own Windows platform, will be within the FOSS Community.

I see the standard hardware vendors listed, but none of the people who actually have an operating system to access these features, outside of the Windows platform.
