X11, Window Managers FSM has an article about improvements coming our way in X.org. "There's more coming our way than 'mere' graphical goodness: Xorg developers are about to unleash upon us more performance and ease of use than X ever knew before. Not only that, the work being done now will allow older hardware to perform better and new hardware to be supported faster."

It sounds like they are implementing shaders with LLVM just like the older Macs and the shader emulation in Mesa. This is tested technology that works.

I only wish more OSs would adopt this technique.
