3D News, GL, DirectX The community-created Nouveau driver that's open-source and is written by clean-room reverse-engineering the NVIDIA binary display driver, has reached a serious milestone. For low-end NVIDIA GPUs, the Nouveau driver based upon the Mesa Gallium3D architecture is now as fast, or even faster, than NVIDIA's official proprietary driver.

I know I'm ready for some accelerated Haiku video goodness! I have an old 1.2GHz Athlon based system with an Nvidia GF2MX card just itching for a Win98/Haiku dual boot install. Classic Windows gaming and a modern BeOS clone, here I come! ;)

May I join the party? I have a K7 Thunderbird @ 900 MHz, 256 MB of RAM, now coupled with a GF4MX 4000 (after years of waiting.... I have finally played HL2 and Doom3!).

I multiboot between WinFLP, Haiku R1, and a couple of BeOS partitions (one from 2002).
