QNX I think that everyone reading OSNews will have heard at least something about QNX. You can regard this article as an introduction, but also as a review, and as a "Is-QNX-Ready-For-The-Desktop? article". To start off, I put together a short explanation of the merits of using a microkernel. Let me start off by saying that QNX Software Systems (QSS) does not aim towards the desktop with their Neutrino RTOS.

3D OpenGL Acceleration ??
by Anonymous on Thu 18th Nov 2004 21:16 UTC

In the release notes and other docs as well as the original announcement the '3D acceleration through hardware' ... "OpenGL acceleration" .. blah blah, well what I want to know is it accelerated through the CPU lol? Or is their [Mesa]GL acceleration actually supported through any of the video cards? I remember the Voodoo3 was the only one to have any real hardware 3D in the older versions, so please don't just tell me that ok ;) Most likely I am thinking they only put the framework in to let developers WRITE the video drivers for real GL accel, but [hoping] maybe atleast some ATI cards have hardware 3D on it...

Anyone please clarify??
