BeOS & Derivatives A few months ago, a bounty for porting Gallium3D to Haiku was submitted. As the target sum of $2000 has been reached, what's needed now is a developer interested in doing the actual coding work. (Gallium3D is a cross-platform video driver API, on which an increasing number of open-source Linux drivers are based.)

From the Gallium3D project's website ( http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/gallium ) :

"Gallium drivers have no OS-specific code (OS-specific code goes into the "winsys/screen" modules) so they're portable to Linux, Windows and other operating systems."

I have a hard time understanding how this can possibly work on something as performance-critical as a GPU driver, but keeping drivers cross-platform is one of their stated goal.
