    Doesn't Mint LInux already use some patented things which other distro's don't use because of the fear of lawsuits?
    So maybe some distro's won't enable it, but others like Mint will.
    As long as they have nothing to do with the USA they don't have to care about USA laws

    Ok, but French speaking or not has actually nothing to do with USA laws

    Ya there are a few distro's that are willing to run the risk but those are exceptions to the rule rather then the rule.

    Does it matter if it's the rule?

    Those who need Open (lol) GL acceleration will be able to get it. That's the most important thing.

    Does anything, besides future kde versions , actually use OpenGL 4+ on Linux?

    Personally I couldn't care less about OpenGL 4, 5, 10 whatever. All I care about is good OpenGL 2.1 support plus any extras needed by wine. And by good support I'm talking about support in the complete driver stack, not just the state tracker. So from my point of view I'd rather see a GSoC student applying for hacking on r600g.

    Having said that, it's not for me to decide what other people should do in their own time, so if he wishes to work on OpenGL 4.1 I wish him good luck, although I agree with other comments that it does sound way too over ambitious.

    Oh I absolutely agree that people that need it can get it and it is the most important thing. That is why I have no issue with blobs.

    Look like someone is willing to own an OpenGL4.0 card...
