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.)

Thanks to this news post, I just read about Gallium3D and how it aims to separate video card drivers from the operating system. What a cool concept!

I have a video card that's supported by Haiku, but there sure are a lot of video cards that aren't. I used to think it would be a huge task getting a large amount of video cards to work in Haiku. I'm sure it still is a huge task, but if Haiku can share video card drivers with Linux through Gallium3D, I think it would be a huge help.
