    Default Android Support Merged Into Mesa / Gallium3D

    Phoronix: Android Support Merged Into Mesa / Gallium3D

    It's now possible to build and run mainline Mesa releases on Google's Android platform. While this doesn't make too much sense to use Mesa on Android for mobile ARM devices due to the lack of open-source Mesa / Gallium3D graphics drivers in this area, this support opens up new possibilities for running the Android operating system on x86 netbooks and tablets...

    Default pedantic correction.

    If you refer to him by his given chinese name, then his first name is Wu. Chia-I is his family name. Therefore, you should address him as Mr. Chia-I(or Chia-I Xiansheng), or by his "given name" Wu. Titles are very important in chinese society and you do him a disservice by referring to him as simply Chia-I.

    If you're going to be pedantic, he's from Taiwan not China.

    While you're being pedantic, you might want to note that the official English name of the state in question is "Republic of China".

    Wow, way to off topic. Maybe you guys want to finish up this discussion of naming convention in private?

    As for the R600G support for Android.... I guess the big question is *just how far* has the Adreno series of GPUs diverged from the R600's they are based on?

    I wonder how we'd find out now that it's owned by Qualcomm.
