Linux Isn't Alone With OpenGL Driver Issues
Phoronix: Linux Isn't Alone With OpenGL Driver Issues
While the open-source Linux graphics drivers may not be up to scratch with the proprietary Linux graphics drivers from NVIDIA and AMD in terms of features, power efficiency, and performance, Linux isn't the only operating system with less than desirable OpenGL drivers. I've been surprised by the OpenGL issues under OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion" with the Retina MacBook Pro...
Not just MacBook Pro with Retina display.
I have four Macs in the house and the three with Nvidia graphics are having difficulty running Windows 7 in Parallels with 3D enabled. The Mac with ATI isn't having the problem. I've been hearing alot of Hackintosh people having problems as well with Nvidia graphics since updating to Mountain Lion.
