IBM today announced the availability of a ‘special edition’ of SciTech SNAP Graphics for OS/2. The SciTech System Neutral Access Protocol (SNAP) Graphics for OS/2 IBM Special Edition (a.k.a. SNAP Graphics/SE) is a set of graphic adapter device drivers (GRADD) supporting a variety of chip sets from the leading chip set manufacturers. SNAP Graphics/SE is the new compatible replacement for previous versions of SciTech Display Doctor for OS/2 IBM Special Edition (SDD/SE).

Hardware OpenGL, thats what OS/2 really needs to help it be comparable as an OS again.. that, and a dang huge price drop.
All I want is anti-aliasing under OS/2.
Hardware OpenGL isn’t that much needed and IMO the price is ok.
graphic adapter device drivers (GRADD)
You gotta be kidding me…
This is the worst overuse of acronyms (TITWOOA). I have ever seen in a technology news post (IHESIATNP). Did the poster thing he would look more intelligent? (DTPTHWLMI)
Instead, he ended up looking stupid (IHEULS).
Interesting, the name SciTech SNAP popping up all over the place right now. I think an interview would be very nice, OSNews!
Actually GRADD, under OS/2, specifically refers to the Object-Oriented driver model (as opposed to the standard driver model). It may look like a cheesy acronym for people who do not know that but it is actually a good thing to mention for OS/2 users.
Wow – as much as I would like to take credit for the cool acronyms;) – the text is from the IBM page announcing the product so please, lets give credit where credit is due.
