On Windows and OSX, Gallium3D as a whole is completely nonexistent. The only way Gallium3D is going to be useful for virtualization, is if hosts expose Gallium3D, including TGSI, directly. That's an assumption I took, because without it, the Gallium3D option isn't even available.

And I disagree that working on Mesa/Gallium and drivers is hard - it isn't. Reading someone else's code is the only way to get in, as is the case with any other project. I used to work (and am working now as that's what I am paid for) on projects which are much harder to work with and so much bigger pain in the ass that Gallium looks like an easy deal, thanks to its great architects.
