RISC OS Hardware accelerated 3D graphics on RISC OS took a step closer to reality, thanks to Simon Wilson. He claims to have ported Mesa 3.2, a 3D graphics library that sports an OpenGL software interface. More importantly, he says he has also ported an Nvidia graphics accelerator from BeOS to harness the GeForce2 video card in the Iyonix to plot graphics fast in hardware.

DRM/DRI isn't dependent on binary drivers. Indeed, NVIDIA's binary drivers don't even use the DRI/DRM. On the other hand, open source DRI drivers exist for a number of chipsets, including Radeons.

They do? With Hardware accelerated 3D graphics? I have never heard of any. Could you supply a URL to one that is not the BeOS/RISC one under development please?
