    I still don't get it :P OpenGL is an open standard that is so open that it needs to be reverse engineered?

    And you complain about D3D for Gallium >.<

    The OpenGL standard describes an API. You still need to translate that API to hardware calls -- this is what the driver does.

    If you don't know how to pass the needed data to the gfx card, you can wipe your ass with the open standard.

    BTW, please show me D3D for gallium working on any hardware, and specifically using S3TC on any hardware.

    Even anisotropic filtering? OMG
    I hope someone will reverse S3TC for R600 hardware too...

    You are clearly unable to control the people here. Make no mistake, allowing that sort of disgraceful CRAP is not only irresponsible, it is also illegal in the US.

    Also, fully expect to be contacted by disabled rights organizations and the FBI if you fail to comply.
    sorry gordboy i don't like your mental-fascism to control people in writing/speaking is like being a Nazi. sure you are one.

    Sorry this thread has gone way off track due to the incessant trolling of gordboy, guys. Maybe if gordboy shuts the heck up and let the intelligent people talk it will work out a lot better.

    Arrg edit limit.

    What we all can do is just ignore trollboy. Don't quote or respond to any of his posts and just post about the topic at hand. He'll then get the hint and disappear.

    Maybe I'm an exception. I use them, I find them lacking, find them slow progressing(as in alarmingly slow), do not understand AMD decisions - but they are open-source.

    At the same time I look at nvidia, and struggle between opensource+inefficiency and blob+efficiency. Seriously, Im starting to hate BOTH nvidia and amd.
