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.

Not that Haiku is doing it all, but the only open-source Hardware accelerated 3D graphics code I have heard about has been Haiku's.

You've never heard about the Direct Rendering Infrastructure? http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/

Nope, until this thread earlier pointed it out to me I had not. I am just now trying to plow my way thru it right.

PS. Thank you everyone for the non-flaming replies - I learnt something new, which is always good ;)
